Dr. Kenneth Neufeld from Thomas Eye Group answers a reader’s question about oculoplastics specialist training.
Q: What training does an oculoplastics specialist have?
Oculoplastics is a combination of ophthalmology and plastic surgery. Oculoplastics specialists only operate around the eyes, allowing them to concentrate on the nuances and intricacies of this very sensitive and complicated area. In terms of training, I had four years of medical school, an internship and a residency, and I completed advanced training in oculoplastic surgery at Duke Medical Center.
