What is Oculofacial Plastic Surgery?
Oculofacial Plastic Surgery, also known as Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive, Oculofacial or Eye Plastic Surgery, is a surgical subspecialty of Ophthalmology. Dr. Hurley deals with the medical and surgical management of deformities and abnormalities of the eyelids, lacrimal (tear) system, orbit (bony socket) and the adjacent face. Dr. Hurley is an Ophthalmologist (medical doctor and eye surgeon) who has completed additional advanced training in plastic surgery as it relates to the eyes and surrounding structures.
Oculofacial Plastic Surgery is plastic surgery as it pertains to the area around the eye. The eyelids and surrounding areas are extremely complex and delicate structures that are vital to the preservation of sight and are important features of a normal facial appearance. Since surgery in this area can affect one’s ability to see, Oculofacial Surgeons are uniquely qualified to perform this delicate surgery and to provide care the eye itself may need.
