Treatment of Eye Conditions
with Pediatric Oculoplasty

Pediatric oculoplasty is a specialized branch of ophthalmology that deals with the reconstruction and repair of the structures surrounding the eyes in children. There are several conditions that may require pediatric oculoplastic surgery to improve the functionality and appearance of these structures.

  • Congenital Ptosis: One common condition that can be treated with pediatric oculoplastic surgery is congenital ptosis. This is a condition in which the eyelid droops, and it can affect one or both eyes. Congenital ptosis can cause a variety of problems, including obstructed vision and difficulty with eye alignment. Surgery to correct congenital ptosis involves tightening the levator muscle that lifts the eyelid.
  • Eyelid Malposition: Another condition that may require pediatric oculoplastic surgery is eyelid malposition. This occurs when the eyelid turns inward (entropion) or outward (ectropion), causing irritation, tearing, and redness. In severe cases, eyelid malposition can cause vision loss. Surgery to correct eyelid malposition involves repositioning the eyelid or tightening the muscles that control eyelid movement.
  • Tear Duct Blockage: Tear duct blockage is another condition that may require pediatric oculoplastic surgery. This occurs when the tear ducts that drain tears from the eyes become blocked, causing excessive tearing and the risk of infection. Surgery to correct tear duct blockage involves creating a new drainage channel for the tears to flow through.
  • Orbital Tumors: Orbital tumors and fractures are also conditions that may require pediatric oculoplastic surgery. These conditions can cause deformities of the eye socket, as well as vision problems and pain. Surgery to correct orbital tumors and fractures involves removing the tumor or repairing the fracture to restore normal function and appearance.
