ANZSOPS members are specialist ophthalmologists (eye doctors) who have additional training in eyelid, lacrimal and orbital surgery. ANZSOPS members are trained to do many different types of eyelid and facial surgery, ranging from eyelid malposition to more complex reconstruction involving the eyelids and surrounding forehead, temporal and cheek areas. They understand the delicate anatomy and function of the eyelids and their surrounding structures. As well as the eyelids, they perform surgery on the lacrimal (tear) system, the orbit (bone cavity around the eye), adjacent periocular (around the eyes) and facial structures as well as the forehead and cheeks.
Internationally known as “oculoplastic surgery”, or “ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery”, this speciality field is known in Australia as oculo-facial surgery or eyelid, lacrimal and orbital surgery.
