Dr. On´s specialty was not an area I had any idea existed until my dry eye specialist suggested seeing him. Dr. On´s interaction made me feel guilty having taken his time. He told me he was taking a sabbatical soon and defined it for me. I was not the one who pushed for this but felt let down after it.

On Patients
"The aspect of oculoplastic surgery that attracted me was the incredible variety of procedures available to the specialty. Although this variety keeps the specialty interesting, patients may have difficulty keeping abreast of their options. I believe in thoroughly discussing these options and coming up with a treatment plan together with a patient."

On Specialty
"My practice encompasses the cosmetic and functional aspects of oculoplastics. I treat eyelid droop, brow droop, and midface deformaties, as well as facial rejuvenation of the upper and midface. I also treat lacrimal and orbital diseases such as tearing problems and thyroid eye disease."
