The eyelids are very delicate and serve the focal point of your face, your eyes! From bags and dark circles, lid drooping, tearing, lid turning in or out, there is no reason to keep suffering! Aren’t you tired of looking tired?
The orbit is the area around our eyes, including bones, fat, vessels, nerves and the eye itself. Trained in oculofacial plastic surgery, we are especially trained to treat thyroid eye disease, orbital tumors and facial fractures.

Dr. Chelnis is the nicest and most professional doctor I met in years. He makes you comfortable and confident in the best outcome of treatment. He really knows his job, but puts patient first. It was a pleasure meeting him and I wish more doctors were like him. Highly recommend and will be going back myself.

I went to see Dr. Chelnis for my droopy eyelids. I had surgeries in the past with other doctors however they were not successful. Dr. Chelnis did better than I anticipated. He lifted both eyelids and after 2 weeks the results are amazing! I would highly recommend Dr. Chelnis.

I have always had a great experience with Dr. Chelnis. Not only does he have the attitude and bedside manner to make you feel comfortable and at ease, but every procedure I've had went extremely smoothly. He even let me pick the music we listened to! Could not recommend Dr. Chelnis more!!!
