Oculoplastics and Cosmetics Procedures
At Eye Care of Maine, our experienced team provides a comprehensive range of oculoplastic services that aim to enhance both the function and aesthetics of your eyes. We are dedicated to ensuring you receive personalized care and achieve optimal results.
What is Oculoplastics?
Oculoplastics is a field of eye care that focuses on the treatment of conditions and cosmetic concerns around the eyes and eyelids. Oculoplastic surgeons are experts in performing delicate procedures to improve eyelid function, repair injuries, and enhance appearance.
Whether it’s correcting droopy eyelids, removing growths, or improving the cosmetic appearance of the eyes or face, oculoplastics play a crucial role in restoring both vision and aesthetics. At Eye Care of Maine, our oculoplastics surgeon, Dr. Zachary Klett, is dedicated to providing safe and effective solutions for your eye health and appearance needs.
Blepharoplasty is an oculoplastic procedure offered at Eye Care of Maine, aimed at rejuvenating the appearance of the eyelids. Blepharoplasty is performed for both medical and cosmetic purposes. During this procedure, Dr. Klett removes excess skin and/or fat to improve both the function and appearance of the eyelid.
The result is a more youthful and refreshed look that can significantly boost self-confidence. Blepharoplasty is a minimally invasive and safe option, making it an ideal choice for individuals seeking to restore a vibrant and rejuvenated appearance around their eyes.
Ptosis Repair is a procedure that corrects droopy eyelids. Ptosis occurs when the muscle responsible for lifting the eyelid weakens or stretches.
This can cause eyelid drooping, which can affect vision and appearance. During ptosis repair, your eye surgeon will surgically tighten the eyelid muscle restoring the drooping eyelid to its proper position.
Entropion and Ectropion
Eye Care of Maine offers entropion and ectropion correction procedures to address eyelid malposition. Entropion occurs when the eyelid turns inward, causing the lashes to rub against the eye, leading to irritation and discomfort.
Ectropion, on the other hand, involves the eyelid turning outward, resulting in a range of symptoms, including dryness. Both conditions can significantly impact vision and eye health.
Dr. Klett performs precise surgical techniques to correct these issues, restoring the eyelids to their proper position. With these corrective procedures, you can enjoy improved eye comfort, reduced irritation, and better protection against potential eye infections.
Skin Cancer Excision and Reconstruction
Skin cancer excision and reconstruction is a crucial service provided at Eye Care of Maine. Skin cancer can affect the delicate skin around the eyes, requiring precise removal and skillful reconstruction to preserve both function and appearance.
Dr. Klett specializes in meticulously excising cancerous lesions, ensuring complete removal. In addition, he specializes in reconstructive procedures in coordination with MOHS surgeons that aim to ensure that the eye and surrounding area look and function as naturally as possible.
Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) is a specialized procedure offered at Eye Care of Maine to address blocked tear ducts. Blocked tear ducts can lead to excessive tearing and discomfort.
During DCR, Dr. Klett creates a new pathway for tears to drain properly from the eyes to the nose, bypassing the obstruction. This procedure helps to alleviate tearing and reduce the risk of eye infections.
What is Thyroid Eye Disease?
Thyroid Eye Disease, also known as TED, is a condition affecting the eyes and surrounding areas. This condition is commonly associated with an overactive thyroid gland.
TED is an autoimmune disorder that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the tissues around the eyes, leading to inflammation and swelling. To effectively manage TED, timely treatment is important.
At Eye Care of Maine, Dr. Klett performs specialized procedures to address TED. The treatment options range from medications to reduce inflammation and swelling, such as Tepezza, to eyelid surgery to address functional and aesthetic concerns and orbital decompressions to create space for severe tissue swelling.
