Why An Oculoplastic Surgeon?

Oculoplastic, or Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, is a subspecialty of Ophthalmology. An oculoplastic surgeon is a physician who specializes in disorders and abnormalities of the eyelids, eyebrows, orbit (eye socket), and lacrimal system. Oculoplastic surgeons are specifically trained to diagnose and treat these conditions and their intricate interaction with the eye and vision.

"My entire experience was very smooth from start to finish! The doctors are very knowledgeable and explain all options best for you."


Following college and medical school, the Oculoplastic Surgeon must first complete a one-year internship and a 3-year residency in Ophthalmology. Once these prerequisites have been met, an additional 2 years of fellowship training is then completed in Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Board certification by the American Board of Ophthalmology is required to complete fellowship training.

It should be noted that a general plastic surgeon typically has 2-3 years to learn the skills necessary to treat cosmetic and reconstructive disorders of the entire body. The rest of the time is spent learning general surgery. By contrast, the oculoplastic surgeon spends 2 years exclusively on the treatment of the eyelid, orbit, and surrounding structures. This level of specialization and experience makes the Oculoplastic Surgeon uniquely qualified in this arena.

The American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS), established in 1969, is the world’s largest organization of surgeons dedicated exclusively to the health and beauty of the eyes and face. All members are board-certified medical doctors who have trained 4 years as interns and residents in ophthalmology followed by fellowship training in aesthetic and reconstructive procedures of the eyelids, eye sockets, tear ducts and face. Most ASOPRS surgeons have trained 6 years or more and before becoming members, all candidates must submit scientific research and pass rigorous oral and written examinations.
