Eye Plastic Surgery

Eye Plastic Surgery, also called Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery or Oculoplastic Surgery, is a subspecialty of Ophthalmology that deals with the evaluation and treatment of deformities, abnormalities and trauma of the eyelids, lacrimal or tear structures, bony orbit and the adjacent facial areas and overlying skin and soft tissue. Eye Plastic Surgery is a unique specialty that relies on the surgeon's technical expertise as well as his or her artistic skill and ability. Ophthalmic plastic surgeons perform cosmetic and reconstructive procedures in and around the delicate eye structures.

At Center for Sight, Gregory T. Hofeldt, M.D. has completed a Fellowship in Oculoplastic Surgery. He is trained and experienced as both an eye physician and surgeon, and as a plastic surgeon as it relates to the eyes and their surrounding structures. He provides evaluation and treatment of adults and children with disorders of the eyelids and eye sockets including incorrect positioning of the eyelids called Entropion or Ectropion, droopy eyelids called Ptosis, fractures, inflammation and other conditions of the bony orbit, as well as evaluation and treatment of the tear drainage system.

As an Oculoplastic Surgeon, Dr. Hofeldt provides a full range of medical facial rejuvenation and cosmetic procedures to help patients look their best and minimize the effects of aging. These include eyelid surgery, also called Eyelifts, or Blepharoplasty as well as non-surgical treatments such as BOTOX®.
