Oculoplastics Questions

What is Oculoplastics?

When an individual has surgery on their eye socket, eyelids, tear ducts, or face, then the individual may be dealing with Oculoplastics or Oculoplastics surgery. The Oculoplastics may include a wide variety of different surgeries that may deal with the facial region on an individual. When someone is in need of Oculoplastics, then the individual may have many questions regarding, why this procedure is needed, how the procedure is done, and what the healing time may be. Read below where some questions about Oculoplastics have been answered by Experts.

What can be done to help a person who tears up every time they chew and what causes this?

In some people that experience tears that are not emotional ones but are brought on by the act of chewing, may be caused from a type of abnormal nerve development. When a person’s nerve has caused tears to form when chewing is damaged, then the individual may need to have a type of Oculoplastics surgery in order to help the nerve from being triggered when the person chews.

If a person has an infection in their eye and the infection has caused the person to tear more, what can be done if the infection is gone but the person is still tearing up more than normal?

If a person is dealing with an infection in their eye and they are experiencing an extreme amount of tearing, then the person may have a couple of options that they may want to consider trying. The first option would be for the person to wait and see of the tears diminish once the infection is gone. The second option that the person may want to try is having the tear duct checked to see if there is a type of obstruction. If there is an obstruction, then the person may want to talk to their doctor about having an Oculoplastics surgery preformed to unblock the tear duct.

If a person has a prolapsed eyelid or the person’s eyelids are not the same, what kind of doctor should the person see and what can be done?

If a person is suffering from a prolapsed eyelid and the two eyelids are not the same, then there may be a chance that the person can try and see if they can talk to an Oculoplastics specialist to find out of there are any kind of surgeries that may be beneficial to the person.

If a person needs Oculoplastics surgery, what will the surgeon do and will the anesthetic cause the person to have droopy lids?

Some people who are having Oculoplastics surgery may experience a safe and easy surgery. The surgeon may inject numbing solution into the area that needs the surgery and then the surgeon may tape the person’s eyelids open to help have a clear surgery area. When a person has Oculoplastics surgery, then the person may not suffer from droopy lids due to the anesthetic that may have been used.

Oculoplastics surgery covers any kind of surgery that deals with the facial region of a person. When a person is in need of any kind of Oculoplastics procedure, then the person may have questions regarding what the procedure may include, what the procedure will help with, or even if the Oculoplastics procedure is what is best for the person to do. When a person is in need of the answers to these kinds of questions or any other questions regarding Oculoplastics, then the person may want to ask an Expert.

  • Good morning I am 43 years old and have just been prescribed

    Good morning
    I am 43 years old and have just been prescribed reading glasses- the prescription is not very strong and I think that it is appropriate. My pupils were dilated at the time of my eye examination and the Optometrist reports that my eye health is good. My problem is that I have a lot of spots and floaters- the best way I can describe it is that they are like snow/ bad reception on the television (in times gone by). I have found that they are increasing in number and that they are increasingly frustrating.
    Is there anything that can be done to improve or correct this?
    Kind regards
