The eye is one very important part of the human body – and it is yet a delicate organ at that. A functional part that holds great significance to an individual’s appearance. But then, several factors – like long-term exposure to sunlight, infection, etc – can put the eye at great risk, and eventually, cause minor or severe defects that require a visit to the best oculoplastic surgery hospital in Nashik to correct.
The Esthetic Clinics has the right set of resources and even the best doctors for oculoplastic surgery in Nashik to ensure that the issue that has been disturbing the optimal functioning of your eye is effectively addressed. The team of surgeons led by Dr. Debraj Shome has, over time, successfully performed hundreds of oculoplastic surgeries in Nashik.
Blepharoplasty: Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that is used in repairing droopy eyelids, a condition that arises as a result of the weakening of the muscles that evolves with age. This condition causes the accumulation of excess fat around the eyelids and leads to the sagging of the eyebrows. While all these adversely affect the cosmesis of the eye, a droopy eyelid also decreases vision to a notable extent. Hence, the objectives of blepharoplasty are hinged on the aesthetic and functional significance of the (affected) eye. To address the issue of a droopy eyelid, the surgeon performs blepharoplasty by removing the skin, fat, and muscle that are responsible for the condition. There are upper blepharoplasty and lower blepharoplasty – in reference to the two (upper and lower) eyelids.
Ptosis Repair: This surgical procedure is geared at treating ptosis, a medical condition that is characterized by the drooping of the upper eyelid. Consequent upon this, the field of vision becomes reduced even as the margin of the upper eyelid is lowered. This condition is primarily caused by the stretching or loosening of the muscle and tendon that enable the elevation of the eyelid thus patients, suffering from drooping eyelid, will usually find it hard to keep their eyelids open. So, the oculoplastic surgeon working towards ptosis repair will aim to shorten the muscle or tendon that has been stretched with the overarching objective of restoring their physiologic integrity – as per the elevation of eyelid and restoration of the normal field of vision.
Ectropion Repair: This oculoplastic surgery procedure is directed at treating ectropion, which describes the situation wherein the lower eyelid is abnormally turned outward, leaving the affected eyelid to sag. With this condition, the eye is left exposed and profound dryness [of the eye] subsequently amounts. Ectropion is associated with symptoms such as gritty sensation in the eye, discharge of mucous, corneal damage, redness, eye irritation, crusting of the eyelid, and chronic tearing. Hence, the surgeon will look to correct all these by ectropion repair that involves the horizontal tightening of the muscles of the eyelid – and the protocol begins with an incision made around the lateral canthus.
Entropion Repair: Here is an oculoplastic surgery procedure that is indicated for the treatment of entropion, a condition that describes the abnormal inward turning of the eyelid. As a result of this, the eyelid will rub against the eyeball, eventually causing irritation and redness of the eye. If you have anyone around that is suffering from this condition, you need to advise such a person to quickly reach out to an oculoplastic surgeon in Nashik and have an entropion repair performed accordingly. The early treatment is sought the better it is to prevent incidences of inflammation, corneal scarring, mucous discharge, and severe tearing. The best approach to entropion repair is applying sutures to turn the affected eyelid outward – thus restoring normal positioning.
Tear Duct Surgery: Tear duct surgery is used in the treatment of epiphora, a defect that is occasioned by the blockage of the tear duct. With the development of epiphora comes the excessive flooding of the face with tears – and infection may even ensue. The procedure to correct the blockage of the tear duct is based on the creation of a new pathway through which tears can flow. A common tear duct surgery procedure is dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) whereby the oculoplastic surgeon inserts a specialized plastic tube – which remains in position for 3 – 6 months – into a new tear drain to restore normal tear flow. Another approach is the Lester Jones procedure that involves the placement of a Pyrex glass tube to create a new (artificial) tear channel.
Orbital Surgery: Orbital surgery procedures are also among the numerous protocols that can be overseen by our oculoplastic surgeons in Nashik. Orbital surgery specifically involves procedures carried out within the eye socket. A notable orbital surgery procedure is orbital wall decompression which has to do with the removal and/or repositioning of the bones of the orbital wall along with some other structures, and it is adopted in the treatment of Graves’ ophthalmopathy. Orbital wall decompression is a complex protocol that must be performed by the best oculoplastic doctors in Nashik – those with good knowledge of the anatomic layout of the orbital space.
Another set of procedures that can be categorised under orbital surgery are evisceration and enucleation. Evisceration, on one hand, is about removing certain ocular contents and sparing others like the optic nerve and sclera while in enucleation, the eye, along with some orbital fats, is removed. It should be noted that the loss of vision is inevitable after the completion of two procedures – which are intended to help prevent total damage and/or complete loss of vision.
Eye Tumor Removal: There are also oculoplastic procedures carried out to get rid of either cancerous or noncancerous tumors. The removal of tumor is especially advised in the treatment of malignancies affecting the orbital space and eyelid.
Oculoplastic surgery cost in Nashik is hinged on several factors. Notable among these, of course, will be the particular procedure that is required to resolve your condition. After that, other elements such as surgeon fee, prescriptions, follow-up period, and diagnosis may be considered. Notwithstanding, having a quality protocol supervised by the best doctor for oculoplastic surgery in Nashik should be cost-effective, to say the least. Moreover, your health insurance provider may also offer some benefits that would lighten up oculoplastic surgery in Nashik in some ways.
