Ophthalmology and Cosmetic services
I have had several patients come to the office surprised to learn that ophthalmologists perform cosmetic procedures such as Botox injections and blepharoplasty. I often explain to them that as eye surgeons, we are trained to perform botox injections on patients with Blepharospam to relax the muscles around the eyes. Blepharoplasty is an integral part of restoring vision in patients with excessive upper eyelid skin, who may be suffering from superior visual field defects. As a refractive surgeon, procedures such as LASIK or cataract surgery to gain spectacle independence can also be considered in our realm of cosmetic services. Even treating chronic ocular allergy or dry eyes can lead to improved cosmesis, as these patients often suffer from "red eyes" or "puffy eyes". Finally, lets not forget "Latisse" for thicker, fuller lashes, a product that originated from a commonly used glaucoma medication. So when you visit your ophthalmologist, don't be surprised by the functional as well as cosmetic services that may be offered to improve your eye health and aesthetics.

Furthermore, its advisable to go to experienced ophthalmologists for quality treatment.
