Oculoplastic Surgery

Blepharoplasty can be performed to treat dermatochalasis (which is drooping of the eyelids affecting vision); this can be performed in our rooms or in the hospital. Entropion correction can treat an inward turning of either eyelid if the margin rests and rubs on the eyeball.

Ectropion is the outward turning of the eyelids, where the margin does not sit normally. It may fall or pull away and cause excessive drying, tearing and irritation. This could be repaired with a myocutaneous flap as part of the procedure. Dr George is qualified to perform Botox injections for blepharospasm. Epiphora is excessive tearing of the eyes and may call for insertion of punctal plugs or nasolacrimal probing to open the tear duct and clear any obstruction. Excision of lesions including basal cell carcinomas is common.
