Dramatically Improve the Way You Look—And See
The quality of your vision is directly related to the function of the skin and structures surrounding your eyes. By combining ophthalmic and plastic surgery principles, oculoplastic surgery can not only improve the clarity and overall quality of your vision, but it can also improve your appearance, leading to a more rejuvenated appearance.
What Is Oculoplastic Surgery?
Oculoplastic surgery focuses on functional and reconstructive treatments for the eyelids, tear ducts, and ocular orbits, as well as cosmetic procedures for the eyelids, eyebrows, and face. As the regional leader in eye care, Wilmington Eye provides specialty care in oculoplastic surgery, as well as the nonsurgical management of many conditions affecting the tissues and structures surrounding the eyes.
Our oculoplastic surgeons also perform aesthetic procedures of the face with injectable treatments, such as BOTOX and Dysport, and facial fillers like Restylane, as well as laser and light procedures aimed at improving the pigment, tone and texture of your skin.

Improving Your Vision
If you feel that your eyelids are obstructing your vision, experience any growths or developments around your eyes or have a disruption in your body’s natural production of tears, it may be time to schedule an appointment with an oculoplastic surgeon. Problems with eyelid function and appearance or tear production can occur at any age, from birth until late into adulthood.

- Upper & lower eyelid lifts
- Plastic and reconstructive surgery of the face and eyelids
