What is Oculoplasty?

 Oculoplasty is a branch of ophthalmology that focuses on plastic or aesthetic surgery procedures   relating to the eyes, as well as the structures that surround it.  This pertains to cosmetic or   reconstructive surgery on areas around the eyes, such as the eyelids and orbit (eye socket). Droopy   upper eyelids, tumors around the orbit, and thyroid disease, are some of the conditions that may   require oculoplastic surgery.
