Because we understand that the health of your eyes involves a wide range of issues beyond eye exams and common vision correction procedures, the Chattanooga Eye Institute is proud to offer a wide range of oculoplastic surgery options. Dr. Jody Abrams, is currently the only fellowship trained sub-specialist in Oculoplastic Surgery and Neuro-Ophthalmology not only in the Chattanooga area. His skills compliment the Chattanooga Eye Institute’s goal to provide total eye care to all members of the family.
Oculoplastic surgery includes many types of surgical procedures that affect the eye socket, eyelids and tear ducts, as well as the face. Often, oculoplastic procedures also involve reconstruction of the eye and its associated structures. This may include procedures as varied as the repair of orbital (eye socket) fractures, the removal of tear duct obstructions, the repair of droopy eyelids, the repair of nerve and/or muscle damage and the removal of tumors in and around the eyes. Oculoplastic procedures are also used to correct crossed eyes, optic nerve sheath decompression and Myasthenia Gravis. Likewise, such procedures may reduce or eliminate some instances of double vision or help improve eyesight for those experiencing decreased vision. Evaluation for Multiple Sclerosis patients is also a key part of our practice.
In addition, oculoplastics may also include cosmetic procedures such as eye lifts, brow lifts, face lifts or the use of products such as Juvéderm
and Botox to reduce facial lines and wrinkles. Whether you need major reconstructive work or just want to take a few years off your look, Dr. Abrams and the Chattanooga Eye Institute will use the latest techniques to help you achieve both your personal best vision and to give you the look you desire.
