Mr. Sampath is also one of the few surgeons in the country who performs around a thousand specialist surgical procedures a year on the eyelid, lacrimal and orbit and surrounding structures.
More than ten years of experience, dedicated specialist training and surgical experience (both cosmetic and corrective) has enabled Mr. Sampath to acquire a solid understanding of eyelids and surrounding structures and functions. This experience has allowed him to acquire the knowledge, insight, and judgment necessary to thoroughly appreciate the nuances and subtleties of eye lid, lacrimal and orbital diseases/conditions/treatment.
Since the eye lids both protect the eyes and nurture the vision, many patients feel more comfortable knowing that their surgeon is not only uniquely trained in the subspecialty of eyelid surgery but is also very knowledgeable about the eyes.
