Though the interview was informative, it would have been nice to differentiate the need for the surgery to be done by an oculoplastic surgeon vs general ophthalmologist. Working with both surgeons, there is a definite need for a lot of the patients, due to age, to have one procedure done by a surgeon fellowship trained,an oculoplastic specialist.
