Why Choose an Oculoplastic Surgeon?

  • Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
  • Comprehensive Ophthalmology

Oculoplastic surgeons are Ophthalmologists (medical eye doctors) who have completed rigorous additional fellowship training in surgery to the structures of the eye and its surrounding tissues and in facial plastic surgery.

Oculoplastic surgeons have specific expertise in treating plastic surgical problems that can impact not only the external physical appearance of the eye area and the surrounding facial structures but also visual function and everyday eye comfort. Only Oculoplastic surgeons trained as ophthalmologists understand the structural anatomy and internal processes of the eye region to allow for appropriate diagnostic and surgical decision making to ensure the best possible outcomes for patients. This is why an Oculoplastic surgeon is the optimal choice to perform eye plastic surgery.

Some physicians who have trained in other areas may refer to themselves as Oculoplastic surgeons if they operate near the eyes. This is inaccurate if they have not successfully completed the specialized training of a fellowship-trained Oculoplastic surgeon.

Fellowship – trained oculoplastic surgeons are uniquely qualified to operate on the eyelids, the muscles that move the eyes, the soft tissue of the eye socket, the walls of the eye socket, the tear drainage system (nasolacrimal system) within the eyes and nose, and the cheek and forehead.

As an Oculoplastic surgeon, Dr. Goldstein specializes in the eye areas, treats a high volume of cosmetic and non – cosmetic patients, and has extensive experience preserving and / or improving his patients’ visual function while providing safe cosmetic eye surgery.
