Oculo-Facial Plastic Surgery
Dr. Goldstein performs Oculoplastic surgery to correct or treat medical conditions or injuries. He may also perform surgery for cosmetic purposes. Oculoplastic and orbital surgery usually pertains to the eyelids, the orbital bone around the eye, and the tear ducts.
If you require plastic, cosmetic, or reconstructive services for your eyes, Bucks-Mont Eye Associates can help. We perform oculofacial plastic surgery in Sellersville, PA.
Reconstructive & Functional Oculoplastics
Ptosis (Droopy Eyelids)
Droopy eyelids can cause reduced vision because the upper eyelids block the upper visual field. Surgery to address excess skin or a weakened eyelid muscle can improve one’s peripheral vision.
When your eyelids are turned in, known as entropion, or turned out, known as ectropion, this can cause tear discharge and irritated eyes. Eyelid surgery can effectively treat both conditions.
Reconstruction of an eyelid typically occurs after cancerous tumors are removed or after a traumatic accident has happened. Surgery includes using grafts and flaps to carefully reconstruct the eyelid.
If there are lesions on your eyelids, they can be surgically removed. Often they are biopsied to make sure they are not cancerous. Lesions can include cysts and moles.
Facial Nerve Weakness
Also known as Bell’s palsy, this condition causes one side of the face, including eyelids, to become weak. This can make blinking and eyelid closing hard to do and can cause additional infection and pain. Treatment can include eye drops or eyelid surgery to help improve eyelid closure.

Orbital Oncology & Surgery
If you have a tumor in your eye socket, then it can be biopsied to see if it is cancerous or not. As with other cancers, some tumors are treated with radiation and chemotherapy. Others may be removed surgically. It varies based on the type of cancer and what stage at which the cancer tumor is.
With Thyroid Eye Disease, or Graves’ Disease, your eye can develop eyelid malposition, bulging eyes, or double vison. This disease directly influences orbit tissues such as, eyelids and eye muscles, and thyroid decompression is a treatment for this condition. This includes removing eye socket bone to allow the eye to reposition itself naturally. Milder cases of Graves’ Disease can include eye drops or gel.
Evisceration & Enucleation
Occasionally, surgical removal of an eye is necessary. There are two types: evisceration, which is partial eye removal, and enucleation, which is complete removal. A temporary implant is placed in the eye socket until an artificial eye is made.
Eye Socket Reconstruction
If an eye socket has been damaged, then eye socket reconstruction is possible. This is achieved through a variety of techniques, such as implants and tightening of the eyelids. An artificial eye can be placed in the eye socket.
Orbital Trauma & Fractures
Facial trauma can result in a fracture that can cause double vision or altered facial appearance. This should be treated with facial fracture repair.
Tear Duct Surgery
If you have inadequate tear drainage, tear duct surgery might be necessary. Most often, the performed surgery is a DCR surgery, which creates a new passage between the tear drainage canal and the nose.
If your eyelids are loose, then consider blepharoplasty to give them a tighter, youthful look. Blepharoplasty takes out fat, spare skin, and muscle from either eyelid.
Cosmetic Ptosis (Droopy Eyelids)
If you have droopy eyelids that don’t affect your vision, then cosmetic surgery is possible to help lift the eyelid.
