Why Choose an ASOPRS Surgeon? 

"The eye is the jewel of the body."
Henry David Thoreau

Scholars have long recognized that eyes are the center of facial expression.  They provide critical cues in gauging emotions and shaping social behavior. Choosing a surgeon to treat problems in this delicate area is an important decision.

The American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, established in 1969, is the world’s largest organization of surgeons dedicated exclusively to the health and beauty of the eyes and face. All members are board-certified medical doctors who have trained 4 years as interns and residents in ophthalmology followed by fellowship training in aesthetic and reconstructive procedures of the eyelids, eye sockets, tear ducts and face. Most ASOPRS surgeons have trained 6 years or more and before becoming members, all candidates must submit scientific research and pass rigorous oral and written examinations. 

Complications are a risk of any medical treatment and no physician can guarantee a perfect outcome. When you need help for problems on the face, choosing a qualified surgeon who also knows and cares about your eyes is an important first step. ASOPRS members are highly trained and uniquely qualified to improve facial beauty and function while protecting ocular health and vision.
