Unlike many ophthalmology practices, Horizon Eye Care offers surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures. Our practice has experienced and proven experts in aesthetic methods that repair or rejuvenate the eyes and skin's surface appearance.
Though aesthetic procedures such as BOTOX® or Dermal Fillers are not always associated with ophthalmologists, why wouldn’t you trust the eye experts with the areas around your eyes? In fact, ophthalmologists were the first doctors to perform Botox injections. Further, the eyelids, sockets, brow and under-eye areas require their expertise.

This product has both medical and cosmetic indications. It is primarily used to focus on areas of concern on the top portion of your face, such as deep-set creases between the brows (mid-glabellar), forehead lines and wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet). Treatment areas are customized to each patient and are encouraged to be maintained every four months.
Primarily used for deep set creases running from the nose to the corner of the mouth and used for fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Dermal filler can also be used to increase volume in the lips. Results typically last between 9-18 months.

If you believe that your eyes are making you look tired, sad or older than you really feel, eyelid surgery (also called blepharoplasty) may be the right choice for you. Eyelid surgery can remove the excess fat and drooping skin of the upper eyelids, minimize bags under the eyes and tighten the lower eyelid skin. The result is a more alert and rested appearance. This outpatient procedure is generally done in the office.
Eyelid Surgery FAQ
- Prior to undergoing eyelid surgery, a complete eye exam should be performed
- Trust the experts – an ophthalmologist with advanced training in oculoplastic surgery is uniquely qualified to both perform the surgery and address the effects of the surgery on the eyeball itself
- Eyelid surgery is performed in a physician’s office or in an outpatient surgery center, and may take between 45 and 90 minutes Surgical outcome depends on skin structure and the healing process
- Postoperative pain is usually minimal and ice compresses are used to reduce swelling
A brow lift, also commonly called a forehead lift, rejuvenates the face above the eyes to restore a more refreshed appearance that better reflects a patient’s natural vibrancy. By removing excess sagging, skin on the forehead and repositioning the underlying muscles and tissues, a brow lift can correct a heavy, sagging brow, eliminate deep furrows, and restore a smoother, more youthful contour to the upper one-third of the face.
