Choosing an Oculoplastic Surgeon and an Accredited Ophthalmologist
Patients seeking sensitive or complex eye care procedures should carefully determine whether the surgeon is a fully trained and certified oculoplastic surgeon. Secondly, while selecting an ophthalmologist, they should know whether the doctor is board certified by the ABOto. Certification from the ABOto indicates that the ophthalmologist has received advanced training and has proven capabilities to perform various eye care procedures.
Patients should carefully distinguish between an oculoplastic surgeon and someone who is only an ophthalmologist or an eye surgeon. Oculoplastic surgeons have a deep understanding of the eye anatomy and the relationship of underlying eye structures with the function and aesthetic aspects of the eye. This allows them to approach any eye care procedure more appropriately and produce optimal results.
An expert eye surgeon will rarely face an eventuality where the patient suffers from complications during or after the surgery. However, the surgeon should ideally have hospital privileges to be able to provide emergency care locally to the patient. Hospitals have rigorous standards and conduct thorough background checks and inspects before granting privileges. Therefore, it is always a prudent idea to choose a surgeon who has outstanding hospital privileges.
Eye care procedures are personalized, requiring frank communication and positive engagement between the patient and the surgeon from the stage of initial consultation to recovery and beyond. Patients usually achieve the most stellar satisfaction levels when they choose a surgeon with whom they can easily develop a personal rapport and a suitable comfort level with.
