Any cosmetic surgery procedure surrounding the eye area should only be performed by a surgeon with specialized training in eye related procedures. Patients should conduct due diligence to identify and select an appropriately trained, qualified, and certified surgeon for their eye procedure such as blepharoplasty.
Dr. Jennifer Hui is a renowned oculoplastic surgeon, board certified ophthalmologist, and an experienced cosmetic eye surgeon providing state of the art eye care procedures. Dr. Hui commands an impressive track record of successful procedures even for complex and delicate eye surgeries. She provides treatments to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Coachella Valley, Riverside, Redlands, Yucaipa, Loma Linda, CA and surrounding locations.
Board Certification in Opthalmology
Dr. Hui is board certified by the pre-eminent American Board of Ophthalmology (ABOto). This certification is achieved only by a select group of eye ophthalmologists who clear the rigorous selection standards of the Board and have a proven record of performance and advanced training and experience in various eyelid surgery and other eye care procedures.
Dr. Hui is a qualified oculoplastic surgeon, which sets her apart from the average eye surgeon because of the cutting edge training and skills acquired in oculoplastic surgery. An oculoplastic surgeon would have completed three years of residency training in Ophthalmology and a further two years of fellowship training in Oculoplastics or Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
Dr. Hui was a member of the Oculoplastics Department at the leading Bascom Palmer Eye Institute for three years. She also devotes time as an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at Loma Linda University, where she is the sole physician in the Oculoplastics Department. She receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Coachella Valley, Riverside, Redlands, Yucaipa, Loma Linda, CA, and nearby areas.
Membership of ASOPRS
Dr. Hui recently had the honor of being inducted into the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS), which is the leading organization for exceptionally qualified surgeons with training and experience in the highly specialized fields of eye, plastic, facial, and reconstructive surgery.
All ASOPRS members have completed post residency fellowships in Oculofacial Surgery. They are also required to submit a scientific thesis of original research in a topic related to Oculofacial Surgery. When this thesis has been accepted after vigorous review by the Society, applicants are required to pass both a written exam and an oral exam administered by the Society.
After clearing through the entire rigorous selection process, Dr. Hui has been chosen as a member of ASOPRS. This places her in the select group of about 700 surgeons nationally and internationally who are a part of this prestigious organization.
It is always a good idea to choose an eyelid surgery expert who has staff privileges at one or more prominent hospitals in the local area. In the rare event of an emergency, the patient can have prompt access to the hospital in such cases. Moreover, hospitals perform thorough background checks and follow high selection standards before granting staff privileges to a surgeon.
