Oculoplastic surgeons are trained ‘eye doctors’ and can carry out surgery on the eyelids. Typical surgery includes the removal of eyelid cysts and repair of eyelid complications such as where the eyelid turns in or out (entropian and ectropian), drooping eyelids (ptrosis corrections) and eyelid reshaping (blepharoplastry).
At St Michael’s Clinic, we have specialist oculoplastic surgeons who are able to treat these conditions.
