Ophthalmic or Eye Plastic and Facial Cosmetic Surgery is a very specialized area of ophthalmology that deals with the management of deformities and abnormalities of the eyelids, lacrimal (tear) system, orbit (eye socket), and the adjacent face. An ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeon is an ophthalmologist (medical doctor and eye surgeon) who has completed additional training in plastic surgery as it relates to the eyes and their surrounding structures. The word “plastic” is derived from a Greek word that means “to mold” or “to give form.” Plastic surgery is surgery that molds or reconstructs parts of the human body.Ophthalmic plastic surgery is plastic surgery that is limited to the structures surrounding the eye. Since this delicate surgery can affect one’s ability to see, ophthalmic plastic surgeons are best qualified to perform it and also to provide any care that the eye itself may need. The Department of Ophthalmology at Apollo Hospitals, Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad provides a comprehensive range of Ophthalmic Plasty and Facial Cosmetic surgical services for both children and adults.
