Eyes are not only the most delicate part of the body, but also an aesthetically prominent one. Symmetry between the eyes must be maintained and cosmetic surgery of the eyelids should not create stretched skin, which gives an unnatural look. These and other aspects can be safely taken care of, when the eyelid procedure is performed by a specialist in eye surgeries.
Dr. Jennifer Hui is a board certified ophthalmologist and eye surgeon providing cutting edge eye care procedures. Dr. Hui has the required skill and experience in performing both lower and upper eyelid surgery procedures. Patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Coachella Valley, Riverside, Redlands, Yucaipa, Loma Linda, and other areas and cities in this part of the state have an opportunity to receive eyelid cosmetic procedures from Dr. Hui.
Dr. Hui earned her board certification in ophthalmology from the prestigious American Board of Ophthalmology (ABOto). Only fully trained and skilled surgeons are awarded this board certification, which serves as an assurance for a patient about the surgeon’s expertise in eyelid surgery.
Dr. Hui is accomplished in oculoplastic surgery and has been a member of the Oculoplastics Department at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute for three years.
Dr. Hui keeps herself updated with the latest developments in the field through her professional memberships in the area of eye care. She is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. In addition to devoting time to her private practice, she also serves as an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at Loma Linda University, where she is the sole physician in the Oculoplastics Department.
WHY CHOOSE AN OCULOPLASTIC SURGEON?
Dr. Hui’s professional training as an oculoplastic surgeon distinguishes her from most other plastic surgeons performing eyelid surgery.
She has completed three years of residency training in Ophthalmology and an additional two years of fellowship training in Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (Oculoplastics). As an oculoplastic surgeon she has a comprehensive understanding of the eye anatomy, and is able to create superior cosmetic and functional eyelid surgery results.
MEMBER OF ASOPRS
Dr. Hui is now a member of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). An ASOPRS membership requirement is that the surgeon should be a board certified ophthalmologist by the American Board of Ophthalmology, and should have completed a full ophthalmology residency of three or more years in diseases and surgery of the eyeball.
Furthermore, a requirement for an ASOPRS member is that they should have received training in oculofacial surgery (care of problems related to the eyelids, tear ducts, orbits, and cosmetic surgery of the eyelids and face). Dr. Hui has completed post-residency fellowships in oculofacial surgery and submitted a scientific thesis of original research in a topic related to oculofacial surgery.
Following clearance of written and oral exams, acceptance of the thesis, and a vigorous review, an applicant is selected as an ASOPRS member.
