Books or tablets: Which is better for your eyes?
For those of us who love to read, digital devices have opened up a rich new world of literary exploration. But as your mind expands, how are your eyes doing?
Oculoplastic and orbital surgery (also known as oculofacial surgery, or ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery) is a wide-ranging subspecialty that addresses conditions of the eyelids, eye socket, and tear drainage system.
While surgeons from many specialties can perform surgery of the eyelids and eye socket, oculoplastic surgeons devote their entire practices to treating this small but vital area. Their training in both ophthalmology and reconstructive surgery allows them to protect and restore vision while providing the best possible outcomes for their patients.
Raymond Cho, MD, FACS explains that a combination of options are available when reconstructing a fractured eye socket, including titanium plates, implants and bone grafts.
Dr. Cho explains that it’s not just the physical resources available at Ohio State that make a difference, but the team of experts from a broad range of specialties collaborating to deliver the best possible outcomes for the most complex cases.
