Oculoplastic surgery is the branch of ophthalmology that specializes in the study and treatment of diseases of the lids, orbit and lacrimal system.

Blepharoplasty is one of the most common surgical procedures. As we age, we develop excess skin in both upper and lower lids and also we develop baggy eyelids. Blepharoplasty is the procedure that  restores , rejuvenates and improves the aesthetics  looks of the lids and the face.

Other common procedure is Ptosis surgery.  Lid ptosis is a droopy eyelid.
People with ptosis often have a compromised vision due to fallen lids.With ptosis surgery, a skin incision is made over the upper lid, and the levator muscle responsible for lifting the eyelid is shortened ,tightened  and reattached to the tarsus , elevating the lid to its normal position.

Other common procedures are the repair of entropion and ectropion which is the turning of the lid margin towards or away from the eye.

There are other procedures that fix problems with tearing and drainage surgery/
Palpebral tumors, tumors of the orbit and orbital fractures are other diseases that are part of the specialty of Oculoplastic and reconstructive surgery.
