Plastic Ophthalmology is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the eyelids, (entropion, ectropion, trichiasis),problems associated with lacrimal drainage requiring opening of the lacrimal canals or insertion of plugs for temporary or permanent occlusion of the lacrimal tube as well as reconstruction of the eye sockets.

The surgeon identifies the individual needs of the patient and performs the appropriate medical intervention to relieve the symptoms and treat the problem.
