Trauma to the face, eyelids, and eye socket often results in injuries that can include abrasions, lacerations, and fractures in the bones around the eye. After trauma, secondary changes in the shape or position of the eye and eyelids can cause bothersome vision problems and cosmetic deformity. Scars or other skin damage after injury can lead to eyelid dysfunction and threaten the health of the eye.
Cuts and Lacerations
The doctors at Eyesthetica are all certified members of the America Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS), signifying that they have specialized training not only in surgery of the eye, but also are certified plastic surgeons of the eyelids and face. When an accident results in a cut or laceration to the areas around the eyes, our surgeons are able to repair these injuries using the most delicate and meticulous techniques available, thereby minimizing scar and protecting normal function.
The history of a traumatic injury can sometimes result in scars that can lead to dysfunction of the eyelids and cosmetic disfigurement. At Eyesthetica, we offer a wide range of surgical and non-surgical options for scar revision and rehabilitation. These options range from laser techniques to surgery. These techniques may often be done in the office under local anesthesia.
Orbital Fracture Repair
Blunt trauma to the eye or face can commonly lead to fractures in the bone that surrounds the eye, the orbit. These fractures need close evaluation, monitoring, and careful treatment planning to restore the normal protection of the eye, limit risk of double vision, and improve the cosmetic appearance and symmetry. We offer state-of-the art surgical techniques to address and repair fractures of the orbital bones, often utilizing the latest technology in orbital fracture implant materials.
Loss of an Eye
Severe trauma may result in severe damage or loss of the eye or vision. The doctors at Eyesthetica are experts at the reconstruction or rehabilitation of patients that have lost an eye due to trauma. We offer a variety of artificial eye surgery and other techniques to restore appearance and function to the structures surrounding the eye.
