Oculoplastic Surgery is a highly specialised field with combined skills in ophthalmology and plastic surgery.

It is practiced by some specialist ophthalmologists who are interested in eyelid, tear duct and orbit function. Usually further training is undertaken overseas and skills are unique. It is important to choose someone with oculoplastics training to ensure stability of the eye and vision.

The field of Oculoplastics is expanding and currently requires specialised surgical skills to enable eyelid function after surgery. If eyelid function is not retained then there may be a threat to vision.


Dear A/Prof Ghabrial and Team,
It is great pleasure that I write to you to express my sincerest gratitude to you for the treatment of my thyroid eye condition and eye reconstruction. I have battled with thyroid eye disease ongoing for several years and was delighted and grateful to find A/Prof Ghabrial, an experienced surgeon in this area. The empathy, kindness and genuine care that you have all shown has been outstanding.
I have no hesitation in highly recommending A/Prof Ghabrial. He is an exceptional eye surgeon and I have the highest praise for both A/Prof Ghabrial and his team. Many thanks again.

Could you please pass on a message to A/Prof Ghabrial thanking him for his efforts with my case. I am really pleased with the results and whilst I thanked him the other day it would mean alot if you could let him know that I am extremely happy with how things have turned out and his excellent work. Actually the entire team was wonderful.

Dear A/Prof Ghabrial,
I just wanted to say a big “Thank You!” This has been such a long stressful journey for me. Thyroid eye disease has really played havoc with my life over the past four years and I have been in so many hospitals and seen so many doctors and specialists along the way, but none as pleasant, professional, diligent, dedicated and caring as yourself. I am so pleased with the results you have given me. I now look forward to taking back my life and moving on. So from the bottom of my heart “Thank You”. I wish you, your family and your fantastic team all the best for the future.
Take care.
God Bless.
Thank You.
Leanne Dobbie
P.S. your whole team are awesome!
