Dramatically Improve the Way You Look—And See

Our oculoplastic surgeons can revitalize more than just your eyes!

Your eyelids, tear ducts and the structures around your eyes are not only vital for healthy vision, they can also play a significant role in your appearance. 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, leaving you looking rested and rejuvenated.

As the regional leader in eye care, Wilmington Eye’s experienced oculoplastic team will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan best suited to your visual and aesthetic goals.

 

What is Oculoplastic Surgery?

The quality of your vision is directly related to the function of the skin and structures around your eyes. 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. Considered the best in Wilmington, our oculoplastic team 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, dermal fillers like Restylane, as well as laser and light procedures aimed at improving the pigment, tone and texture of your skin.

Each procedure promotes oculofacial rejuvenation and improves visual acuity.

  • "Dr Escaravage is one of the best doc's we've ever had. Some of his best features are that he is personal and compassionate. He surgically removed my wife's left eye because of a rare form of cancer in the eye lid and tissues surrounding the eye ball. He could not have shown more compassion if she had been his own mother. We love him and highly recommend him to anyone."

She was very thorough and explained the procedure. The day of the procedure, I was in and out in 30 minutes. I have healed nicely and I am very happy with the results. I will use Wilmington Eye for all of my future eye care needs. "
