This covers a wide variety of surgical procedures that deal with the orbit (eye socket), eyelids, tear ducts, face and reconstruction of the eye and associated constructions. There are also a variety of non-surgical oculoplastic benefits for remedial purposes not correlated to medical diagnosis or damage.


Watering from the eye is a very common symptom and one of the cause is blockage in tear outflow. This condition leads to Dacryocystitis (inflammation of lacrimal sac) and needs surgical management in form of Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR)

A thorough evaluation along with some investigations like syringing will reveal the site and degree of block. The DCR surgery can be done by 2 approaches :

  • Conventional / External DCR
  • Endonasal DCR


Ptosis is drooping of upper eyelid. It can be present since early childhood or can develop later. Some of the types of ptosis are :

  • Congenital
  • Myogenic
  • Neurogenic
  • Aponeurotic

The treatment depends of the amount of ptosis and degree of levator function. Some of the surgical options are :

  • Levator muscle resection
  • Frontalis sling operation


All types of lid surgeries for correction of Ptosis, entropion, ectropion
Endonasal DCR

Oculoplasty is a branch of ophthalmology that deals with the various disorders of eyelids, adenexa and lacrimal apparatus. Some of the commonly seen eyelid disorders are :

  • Entropion – inward rolling of lid margin
  • Ectropion – outward rolling of lid margin
  • Ptosis – drooping of upper lid.

Some other commonly seen conditions are :

  • Chronic dacryocystitis
  • Acute dacryocystitis
  • Proptosis
