These procedures include repair of droopy eyelids, repair of tear duct obstructions, orbital fracture repairs, removal of tumors in and around the eyes, and facial rejuvenation procedures including laser skin resurfacing, eye lifts, brow lifts, and even facelifts.

Oculoplastic procedures frequently have both functional and aesthetic purposes. For example, blepharoplasty, a procedure for excessive and droopy eyelid skin, may improve peripheral vision as well as facial beauty and rejuvenation. Repair of tear duct obstructions prevents tears from running out of the eyes and down the face, in some cases without even an incision. Repair of traumatic orbital fractures may prevent double vision as well as a sunken eye appearance. Droopy eyebrows are being raised through tiny incisions hidden in the hairline. Laser skin resurfacing is resolving facial wrinkles, acne scars, and the usual signs of aging and sun-damage resulting in a more natural, youthful appearance. The list goes on.
