Surgical Services We Provide:

Adult Strabismus

Strabismus, or crossed eyes, involves the misalignment of the eyes. Surgery to correct it typically entails making small incisions in the tissue covering the eye, adjusting the eye muscles' positioning or length to realign the eyes, and closing the incisions. This may involve weakening, strengthening, or repositioning the muscles using suture techniques. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia for children and local anesthesia with sedation for adults. Recovery usually takes a few days to weeks, with follow-up appointments to monitor progress. While the surgery can improve eye alignment, it may not always fully correct the condition, and additional treatments may be necessary.

Excision Eyelid Neoplasm

Excision of an eyelid neoplasm involves surgically removing a growth or tumor from the eyelid, typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. The procedure entails carefully incising around the neoplasm, removing it along with a margin of healthy tissue to ensure complete excision, and then closing the incision with fine sutures. Recovery may take several weeks, during which swelling, bruising, and discomfort may occur, and follow-up appointments are essential to monitor healing and assess for recurrence. Preservation of eyelid function and aesthetics is prioritized, with additional treatments such as radiation or chemotherapy considered for malignant neoplasms to prevent recurrence or metastasis. Early detection and treatment are crucial for optimal outcomes and long-term eye health.

Pediatric Ptosis

Pediatric ptosis is a drooping of the upper eyelid in children, often present at birth or acquired later due to various factors. Surgery to correct it involves lifting the drooping eyelid to improve vision and appearance. Under general anesthesia, the surgeon adjusts the muscles responsible for eyelid elevation, typically by making incisions in the eyelid crease or attaching a sling material. Recovery involves mild swelling and bruising, with follow-up appointments to monitor progress and ensure optimal outcomes.

YAG Laser Capsulotomy

A YAG laser capsulotomy is a procedure commonly performed to treat a condition called posterior capsule opacification (PCO), which can occur after cataract surgery. PCO happens when the capsule behind the artificial lens implanted during cataract surgery becomes cloudy, causing vision to become blurry or hazy. During a YAG laser capsulotomy, a laser is used to create a small opening in the cloudy capsule, allowing light to pass through and restoring clear vision. The procedure is typically quick and painless, often performed as an outpatient procedure in the ophthalmologist's office. After the capsulotomy, patients usually experience immediate improvement in vision with minimal downtime.
