Dr. Smith's surgical specialty is state-of-the-art cataract surgery. He also enjoys refractive lensectomy and difficult challenges such as repairing traumatic damage to the eye. With subspecialty training in oculoplastics he has also mastered the art of cosmetic eyelid surgery including blepharoplasty.

Cosmetic eyelid surgery is performed onsite at Dr. Smith's private Surgicentre at the Ottawa Carleton Eyecare Centre.

What is an oculoplastic surgeon?

An oculoplastic surgeon is an ophthalmologist who has undertaken extra fellowship training in oculoplastics. The oculoplastic surgeon concentrates on being an expert in one area of plastic surgery, the eyelid. Expertise centres on surgical eyelid abnormalities, tearing problems and cosmetic eyelid procedures.
