Comprehensive exams and state-of-the-art diagnostic technology to identify eye conditions requiring oculofacial plastic and orbital surgery
WVU Eye Institute’s oculofacial plastic and orbital surgeons specialize in plastic and reconstructive surgery for children and adults to correct or treat disorders both common and rare. Oculofacial plastic and orbital surgery (sometimes also referred to as Cosmetic Facial Rejuvenation) may treat conditions of the eyelids, tear production and drainage (lacrimal) system, brows, the area of the face adjacent to the eye, and the bones surrounding the eyes. We also have clinics dedicated to addressing thyroid eye disease.
