Oculoplasty is the field of ophthalmology that concerns with the restructuring of the eye and the area around the eye. It is a distinct subspecialty that manages problems associated with the eyelids, the lacrimal system, the orbit and the ocular adenexae. The problems may be functional where the surgery is performed to restore the normal protective function of the ocular structures and the vision. On the other hand aesthetic surgery may be performed to enhance appearance and sense of well being.
