Oculoplastics

Reconstructive

Eyelid Lift

Blepharoplasty is a procedure in which extra skin (also known as dermatochalasis) and/or fat is removed or re-positioned to help give a more youthful and rested appearance.

Eyelid Ptosis

Eyelid Ptosis (pronounced “toe-sis”) occurs when the upper eyelids droop down to the point that they cause a reduction in a person’s visual field…either partially or completely obstructing the pupil.

Brow Ptosis

Brow ptosis occurs when the eyebrow drops lower than normal. This often makes the eyelid appear droopy due to extra skin from the brow that pushes down on the eyelid.

Out-Turned Eyelid (Ectropion)

Ectropion is a term used to describe when the eyelid turns out. This often causes eye irritation (due to dry eyes), skin irritation (dermatitis), and tearing (due to abnormal tear drainage).

In-Turned Eyelid (Entropion)

Entropion is a term used to describe when the eyelid abnormally turns in, often causing the eyelashes to rub against and scratch the eye, possibly causing infection or cornea damage.

Poor Eyelid Closure (Lagophthalmos)

Some patients suffer from constant eye pain because they cannot completely close their eye (often called lagophthalmos) and experience ongoing discomfort.

Tear Duct (Lacrimal) Surgery

Some patients experience excessive tearing because the normal tear drainage pathway becomes blocked. Tear duct blockage can be caused by a number of issues including age, tumors, allergies, and more.

Reconstructive

Facial Spasms

Some patients are unable to keep their eyes open or control their facial movements due to abnormal muscle spasms in the face. This becomes very bothersome because patients are fighting to keep their eyes open just to do daily activities.

Artificial Eyes (Enucleation/Evisceration)

Losing an eye as a result of an infection or injury is a very difficult and traumatic experience. For patients suffering from blind, painful eyes or a cancer in the eye that cannot be treated, we offer the option of replacing the eye with an implant.

Eyelid & Facial Skin Cancer

Abnormal skin growths around the eye are a common occurrence. While many bumps are not harmful (benign), they can also be cancerous (malignant) and need to be removed by someone with proper training.

Eyelid & Facial Growths

Lesions on the face are a common occurrence. These can range from skin growths, to irritating bumps (sometimes due to a chalazion) or infections (such as an abscess).

Temporal Artery Biopsy

Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA or Temporal Arteritis) is a condition which causes inflammation of the large arteries. This inflammation can block the normal flow of blood in your body and face leading to tissue death and pain.

Thyroid Eye Disease

Grave’s Disease is a common disease affecting adults, especially women under 40 years old. This condition involves abnormal antibodies that cause an excess production of thyroid hormone and also attack the soft tissues around the eyes (in the orbit).

Cosmetic

Cosmetic Evaluations

Triad Eye Institute offers a variety of periocular treatments which include surgical and less invasive procedures that can help provide a more aesthetic look for our patients.

Eyelid Lift

Blepharoplasty is a procedure in which extra skin (also known as dermatochalasis) and/or fat is removed or re-positioned to help give a more youthful and rested appearance.

Forehead & Brow Lift

Brow ptosis occurs when the eyebrow drops below the orbital rim. Brow ptosis repair aims to return the brow to its anatomical position along the orbital rim. Several methods exist to repair brow ptosis including direct brow lift, forehead lift (for those with mild to moderate brow ptosis) and browpexy (to stabilize brow descent).

Fillers – Restylane®, Botox® and Juvederm®

The natural process of aging involves losing volume in the face and developing wrinkles which can given patients a tired or “saggy” appearance. This can also occur due to a variety of conditions associated with sun exposure, smoking, the effects of gravity, etc.
