An Eye For Creating Beauty
Really, it all comes down to a matter of trust. Who do you trust more with your eyes — an ophthalmologist, or a plastic surgeon?
They both have their strengths — an ophthalmologist is trained specifically in the delicate details of the eye and has completed years of study devoted to that area. A plastic surgeon is trained in the aesthetic arts and is blessed with creativity and imagination, in addition to their surgical prowess. It is a difficult decision, and yet, there is a simple solution. Oculoplastic surgery is a relatively new field that has been around since the late 60’s and combines the elements of ophthalmology and plastic surgery.
After completing an ophthalmology residency and gaining proficiency in microsurgical skills and ocular anatomy, an oculoplastic surgeon then completes a plastic surgery fellowship to hone their surgical skills of the eyelid, nasolacrimal system and orbit. This gives them a unique vantage point, since they have the advantages of both groups and the limitations of neither.
