Oculoplastic Surgery in Arkansas

Also known as ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive oculofacial or eye plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery is the cosmetic, corrective and reconstructive surgery of the eye. This may include the eyelids, eyebrows, lacrimal or tear system and the tissues behind the eye, known as the orbit. These structures are critical for vision. Injuries, congenital defects, aging changes and tumors affecting the eyelids as well as the tissues and bones surrounding the eyes can cause pain, eye damage, vision loss and disfigurement.

The position of the eyelid is vital to the health of the eye. Eyelid malposition can occur with aging or certain diseases. There are many types of eyelid malpositions including an outward turning or ectropion, an inward turning or entropion and droopiness or ptosis.

Dr. Daniel Sines at BoozmanHof is uniquely qualified to perform these delicate surgeries and to provide any other care the eye itself may need. Dr. Sines can:

  • Reconstruct eyelids
  • Correct eyelid position abnormalities
  • Remove growths
  • Rebuild the critical structures surrounding the eye
  • Treat orbital fractures and trauma
  • Remove orbital tumors and cancer
  • Correct lacerations
  • Remove the eye with subsequent reconstruction of the socket

Some of the problems we treat using oculoplastic surgery are:

  • Vision obstruction due to droopy eyelids
  • Lids turning inward or outward or creating irritation
  • Excessive skin or fat in the upper or lower eyelids blocking vision and resulting in an unattractive appearance
  • Fine wrinkles including frown lines and crow’s feet
  • Benign and malignant growths on the eyelids
  • Blocked tear ducts resulting in excessive tearing
  • Infection, inflammation and/or tumors in the tissue behind the eye
