Adnexal (Tissues around the eye)

This service treats the tissues around the eyeball. These include, the eyelids, socket and the tear system.

What this service does.
This service provides care and treatment for tissues around the eye. These include anomalies of the lids, and tear duct system. Thus if there is excessive watering, that does not respond to medical treatment we will suggest ways of solving this problem. If the lids are not in position on the eyes, or if they droop or do not rise up normally with the movements of the eye, the service will suggest surgical remedies for this condition.
