Specialties

Ocular Plastic Surgery

Boston Eye Physicians & Surgeons offer several oculoplastic procedures to treat patients needing cosmetic or functional surgery on or around their eyes. One of the most requested procedures is ptosis treatment. Because of aging, genetics, injury or previous eye surgeries, the eyelid may droop and cause vision problems for patients, a condition known as ptosis. In severe cases of ptosis, the eye surgeons will perform blepharoplasty to remove excess skin and tighten the eye area.
