Why opt for an ASOPRS surgeon? The eyes play a pivotal role in facial expression, conveying emotions and influencing social interactions. Selecting a surgeon to address issues in this sensitive area is a significant choice. ASOPRS stands as the premier global organization of surgeons devoted solely to enhancing the health and aesthetics of the eyes and face.
Membership in this society represents the pinnacle of excellence in ophthalmology, renowned for expertise in oculofacial surgery. Oculoplastic surgery focuses on enhancing areas surrounding the eyes: the eyelids, orbit (eye socket bones), and lacrimal (tear duct) system. Oculoplastic surgeons form a specialized, exclusive subset within ophthalmology. These members are certified by boards and maintain stringent membership standards, distinguishing themselves as top-tier professionals in the field.
