Oculoplastic Surgery

The Division of Ophthalmic and Facial Plastic Surgery at Montefiore Medical Center is dedicated to helping patients improve and maintain their vision. Common eye conditions include drooping eyelids and excess eyelid skin, which prevent clear vision. Our oculoplastic surgeons deliver innovative procedures that improve the function and appearance of upper and lower eyelids.

Access to Leading-Edge, Innovative Care

We specialize in reconstruction of the eyelids, orbit and lacrimal system. Our oculoplastic surgeons received advanced training to treat the delicate areas surrounding the eyes. Each patient receives a comprehensive evaluation to determine the best course of treatment. Eye disorders we commonly treat include:

  • Benign and malignant eyelid tumors
  • Brow ptosis (drooping eyebrows)
  • Congenital eyelid abnormalities
  • Eyelid malposition (i.e., entropion, ectropion, retraction)
  • Eyelid reconstruction
