PROCEDURES

The following procedures are performed by this doctor.

Dry eye/tear solutions

Tears lubricate and protect your eyes and help maintain clear vision. When too few or poor quality tears are produced, dry eye occurs, causing a gritty, uncomfortable feeling, with blurriness and a feeling of something lodged in the eye.

Eyelid lesions

Eyelid surgery

Iridotomy

Iridotomy is the formation of a small hole in the iris (the colored portion of your eye) to allow excess fluid to drain behind the iris, where it can be more easily absorbed.

Removal of cyst/pimple on or in eyelid

Cysts, pimples, or sties are caused by bacteria that get into the oil glands in the eyelids.

Removal of growth on conjunctiva

These growths are thought to be caused by UV light exposure, such as sunlight. The growth typically occurs from the nasal side of the sclera, or the white part of your eye.

Repair of non-functioning or blocked tear duct

A blocked tear duct results in your tears not being able to drain normally. This often leaves you with a watery and irritated eye. Blocked tear ducts are the result of a partial or complete obstruction in the tear drainage system.

Upper eyelid surgery

Upper Eyelid Surgery is done to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, or to fix any defects, deformities, or disfigurations. The procedure is done to restore correct function to the eyelids. Eyelid problems can interfere with your vision.
