Oculoplastic FAQ

What Is Oculoplastic?

While it might sound like a fancy procedure, oculoplastic surgery involves any eye surgery in or adjacent to the area of the eye. This frequently includes the eyelids, the tear duct area, and underneath the eye. In some respects, oculoplastic surgery can be considered plastic surgery for the eye area, but many procedures within the category also address real eye issues that patients struggle with otherwise. Restoration Eye Care in Columbia, MO, can offer several services and help patients with difficult surgery. 


What Experience Do We Hold with Eye Surgery?

Oculoplastic surgery is performed by an eye doctor surgeon with added training specific to the procedures involved. This surgery goes well beyond the basic eye services provided by an optometrist. Several surgery types are included in this capability, including blepharoplasty, eyelid cyst surgery, eyelid laxity procedures, and ptosis surgical treatment, among others. Additional services can consist of work within the eye orbit cavity, the face around the eye, aesthetic improvements to the immediate area, and reconstructive surgery help for trauma patients.

Who Are Our Surgeons?

Our state-licensed ophthalmologist, Dr. McGarity, handles all eye surgeries and uses his experience to assist you. In addition, Dr. Adam Clarke, our knowledgeable ophthalmologist, can help you with any surgery. They are both board certified and have been in the practice for over three years. Because of the delicate nature of the eye as a sensitive organ, all precautions are taken with specialized care to ensure the safest procedures are followed.
