Oculoplastics combines advanced training in ophthalmology with specialization in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Oculoplastic surgery is performed on children and adults to correct or treat disorders – from the most common to the rarest – of the eyelids, tear production and drainage (lacrimal) system, brows, the area of the face adjacent to the eye, and the bones around the eye.
Our oculoplastic surgeons, also known as eye plastic or oculofacial surgeons, also perform cosmetic surgery and procedures [see: Cosmetic Facial Services] that seek to enhance the appearance of patients.
Ted Wojno, MD, James and Shirley Kuse Professor of Ophthalmology, is the director of Oculoplastics at Emory Eye Center.
