Trained surgeon in the field of Oculoplasty - with facilities to provide lid repairs, electocautery, Management of ocular tumours. The Department of Orbit and Oculoplasty deals with the management of diseases and abnormalities of the orbit, eyelids and the lacrimal system. Drooping of the upper eyelid (ptosis) is a common problem dealt by this Department. If the lid droop is very severe especially in young children, it can even lead to lazy eye (amblyopia). Hence correction of the condition is essential for functional and cosmetic improvement. Orbit is the bony cavity enclosing the eye. The orbit can be the seat of tumors that cause protrusion of the eyeball (proptosis). The lacrimal system drains tears into the nose and could be the site of chronic infection (dacryocystitis).
The Department is ably supported by a well-equipped Ocular Pathology Department. These and several other diseases are managed by a group of dedicated full time Consultants.
