Mercy Eye Center
Mercy Eye Center oculoplastic surgeons are ophthalmologists trained to perform difficult plastic surgery procedures to the eye and areas surrounding the eye. Oculoplastic surgery may be needed by patients who:
- have a congenital medical condition affecting the function or protective function of the eye or eye area
- have suffered an eye-related injury or abnormalities from previous eye surgery that requires reconstructive surgery, or
- who simply want a cosmetic procedure to improve appearance of baggy eyebrows and eyelids, dry eyes, droopy eyelids, and bulging eyes.
Our board-certified oculoplastic surgeons operate on the eye, eyelid area, orbit (the bone around the eye), and lacrimal (tear duct) system.
When you come to the Mercy Eye Center for an oculoplastic procedure your ophthalmologist will perform a complete eye evaluation and depending on your eye conditions and symptoms, your doctor may recommend further diagnostic testing.
When coming in for an appointment with a Mercy Eye Center eye care professional or oculoplastic surgeon bring any medical records you have including scans or x-rays and lab test results. If you do not have copies contact your current physician or eye specialist and request that a copy of your files be sent to the Mercy Eye Center. Bring a complete list of your current medical problems, known medical history (including family medical history), and list of current medications including dosage. Because you will likely need to have your eyes dilated during your eye evaluation plan on having someone drive you or make plans for transportation ahead of time.
