Oculoplastic treatment and surgery for eyelid that turned away from the eye. Surgery usually involves tightening of the lid with or without placement of the skin.
DIABETIC EYE DISEASE TREATMENT
This is a group of eye problems that can affect people who have diabetes. Conditions include diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, cataracts and glaucoma. Over time, diabetes can cause damage to the eyes, leading to poor vision or even blindness.
Also known as "surfer's eye," the main symptom is a growth of pink, fleshy tissue on the conjunctiva, the clear tissue that lines your eyelids and covers your eyeball, and can cause discomfort or interfere with vision.
OCULOPLASTIC TREATMENT & SURGERY
Mid North Coast Eye Clinic provides oculoplastic treatment for droopy eyelids and eyebrows, eyelid malposition, eyelid cancers, globe cancers and watery eye. We use conventional surgery and the Ellman Radio Surgical process for oculoplastic surgery.
PTOSIS / BLEPHAROPLASTY
Dr. Ivan M. Young performs upper eyelid levator muscle surgery by strengthening the muscle. Lid drooping can also be improved by removing skin or fat tissue from the upper lid.
