What is Oculoplastic Surgery?

As many of you know, TOC Medical Spa represents the medical spa area of TOC Eye and Face. The TOC physicians are leaders in their field of oculoplastic surgery. But what is oculoplastic surgery, exactly?

One of our registered nurses, Meredith Brethe, explains, “Oculoplastic surgery is a surgical subspecialty of ophthalmology, also called Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive or Oculofacial Surgery, deals with the medical and surgical management of problems of the eyelids, tear ducts, and orbital (bony socket) and adjacent facial structures. An Oculoplastic Surgeon is an Ophthalmologist (medical doctor and eye surgeon) who has completed additional years of very advanced training in plastic and reconstructive surgery as it relates to the eyes and adjacent structures.”
