This website is designed to be accessed by the public for general oculoplastic information and to help them find an oculoplastic surgeon in their own geographical area. It is also an important tool for the society, permitting surgeons to have access to information about membership, the annual scientific meeting, surgical audit and training. It also provides useful links. Some areas of the website are for BOPSS members only and these are accessed only with a password.

The aims of the Society are:

  • To advance education, research and the quality of clinical practice in the area of ophthalmology known as oculoplastic surgery. (This field comprises specialist plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery of the eyelids, orbit, lacrimal drainage system, and the upper and mid-face).
  • To provide an opportunity for members to meet, communicate and share their expertise and experience in oculoplastic surgery.
  • To provide information and advice to the public in order that a better understanding of oculoplastic surgery as a subspecialty can be achieved.

BOPSS has over 200 consultant oculoplastic surgeon members, holds an annual scientific meeting, co-ordinates surgical audit and is active in establishing surgical training guidelines. It is intended that BOPSS will continue to evolve and develop its influential national role in education and training, and the promotion of oculoplastic surgery within ophthalmology as well as in relation to allied surgical specialties such as plastic surgery, maxillo-facial surgery, otolaryngological (ENT) surgery, neurosurgery and dermatological surgery.
