Ophthalmology | Male | 68 years old

I am an eye doctor, as well as an eyelid plastic surgeon, and I deal with the lower lid, the upper lid, the inner area around the nose - which includes the tear duct - the outer area. If people can't see well because the lid obscures the vision, they really want to have the surgery in order to see better. In about another third of the cases, the tear duct is blocked in the corner of the nose. And that's quite bothersome for patients because they're always wiping their eyes and, in fact, have trouble even seeing or even reading through their tear film. And there are a lot of newer techniques where we put tubes in the tear duct or actually operate on the tear duct, and we can reconstruct it and help patients with the tearing. What's terrific about ophthalmic plastic surgery is that we're able to make patients look better, see better, have a great functional result - and without any long term problems.Read more

After seeing 3 other Drs with no luck, Dr M solved the mystery of my dinking eye. He immediately sent me to an ENT and within a week I was scheduled for surgery. I now have a plate holding my eye up to replace a non existent orbital floor and thanks to his meticulous work- you wouldn't ever know. Thanks! -silent sinus girl ;)
