Oculoplasty

Ein Tal is home to a unique, prominent center for oculoplasty, which involves plastic surgery and restoration of the eye area. The center specializes in problems related to the eyelids, tear ducts, growths, and orbit (eye socket). It is staffed by top oculoplastic surgeons who provide professional consultations and diagnoses, while also performing all the most advanced, leading treatments in the field.

 

Eyelid & Eyebrow Surgeries

Eyelid Lift Surgery

As time goes by, changes occur to the elasticity of the eyelids, the texture and volume of facial muscles, and the fat deposits in the eye socket. All these factors can create aesthetic problems for the eyelids that are sometimes accompanied by a medical disorder. In these cases, the solution is plastic surgery to remove excess skin – and sometimes also subcutaneous muscle – from the eyelids.

Droopy Eyelid (Ptosis) Surgery

Ptosis is drooping of the upper eyelid. The droop can be of varying degrees, and can occur for a variety of reasons. In most cases, eyelid drooping is treated surgically.

Eyebrow Lift Surgery

Over the years, the connection between the brow and deep tissue can become weaker, which leads to drooping of the eyebrows (brow ptosis). In these cases, combined eyebrow lift surgery should be considered, with or without an eyelid lift procedure.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Patients frequently notice that something is wrong with their lower eyelids. There are many conditions that can lead to a fatigued appearance, such as puffy or dark bags under the eyes, eyestrain, and so on. In these cases too, the solution is usually surgical. A pre-surgical evaluation should be performed in order to determine the precise problem and maximize results.

 The two eyelid surgeries can often be carried out during the same procedure, depending on the eyelid position and the patient's preferences. Most surgeries are carried out under local anesthesia and do not require hospitalization.

 

Tear Duct Surgery

Tears are a liquid layer covering the surface of the eye. They contain many substances that help to protect and nourish the cornea and conjunctiva, clear away irritations, and promote unhindered vision.

The tear system is complex, and if any of its components are damaged, a disease can easily develop in the tear gland area. This leads to a lack of tears, resulting in dryness or blocked tear ducts that can cause excessive watering and discharge.

 If excess tears are created due to blocked tear ducts, the problem can be solved by simply expanding the duct openings.

 However, if the source of the obstruction is deeper, in the tear sac or tear duct, the process is more complicated. The usual treatment for this blockage is DCR surgery, which redirects tear ducts to the nose. It is usually performed under local anesthesia with sedation, or under general anesthesia.

Chalazion

This is a common chronic condition in which one of the eyelid's sebum glands becomes blocked and continues to accumulate sebum. The gland creates a local infection and/or inflammatory response, resulting in redness and swelling of the eyelid.

 The initial treatment for chalazion includes warm compresses, maintaining good eyelid hygiene, and antibiotic treatment. If the chalazion becomes severe, a surgical procedure is carried out in order to drain and remove the chalazion.

Eyelid Growths

Skin lesions in the eye area are common and can be categorizes by color, origin, and biological behavior.

 The treatment of such growths is determined taking into account various considerations, such as type, size, location, and so on. Several treatment methods are available, including surgical excision
