Also Serving Bucks County, Mercer County, Middlesex County
In addition to LASIK and other refractive surgeries, the renowned surgeons of Campus Eye Group offer various cosmetic services to enhance the appearance of the eyes. While clear vision and optimum eye health are their main objectives, the physicians of Campus Eye Group are aware that aesthetic concerns are often foremost on patients’ minds and can greatly affect their quality of life. New Jersey eye patients often receive surgical solutions to address common conditions of the eyelids and skin surrounding the eyes.
Many patients in New Jersey suffer from ptosis, or drooping upper eyelids. Ptosis occurs in patients of all ages and is not merely a cosmetic issue; when ptosis is severe, the eyelids can hang down and obstruct the patient’s vision. Ptosis may be caused by a number of factors. For some patients, ptosis is present at birth. For others, it occurs due to aging. Ptosis may also result from problems with the muscles used to lift the eyelids, called levator muscles.
Whatever the cause of ptosis, an eyelid surgery known as blepharoplasty is usually the recommended treatment. During the procedure, the surgeon tightens the levator muscles in order to lift the eyelids to a more natural position, allowing for unobstructed vision and a more pleasing appearance.
In addition to treating ptosis, the experienced surgeons of Campus Eye Group also are expert at correcting conditions such as entropion and ectropion. Entropion is a condition in which the eyelid (typically the lower eyelid) folds inwardly and forces lashes onto the eye, potentially causing irritation and damage. In ectropion, the lower eyelid sags outward and may no longer be able to protect the eye, often leaving it dry and irritated. Both entropion and ectropion can be treated surgically by the eye care team at Campus Eye Group.
Besides offering eyelid surgery, Campus Eye Group surgeons also provide treatment to patients whose eyes have been damaged due to injury, including eyelid reconstruction and the repair of orbital fractures (fractures of the bones surrounding the eyes) and hyphema (bleeding within the eye).
Moreover, coming soon, Campus Eye Group will offer the latest injectable wrinkle fillers for patients who wish to rejuvenate the appearance not only of their eyes but of their facial skin as well.
Disorders of the eye can affect not only a person’s vision acuity and eye health but his or her aesthetic appearance as well. Mercer County and New Jersey patients who wish to correct their ptosis, entropion, ectropion or other eye-related facial condition are encouraged to schedule a consultation with a Campus Eye Group surgeon.
