Philosophy of Care
My philosophy of care is to improve and treat diseases of the eyelid, tear duct/lacrimal system, and orbit while preserving the health of the eye.
Dr. Lin serves as Director of the Ophthalmic Plastic and Orbital Surgery Service. Her practice of Ophthalmic Plastic or Oculoplastic Surgery consists of plastic and reconstructive surgery of the periocular area. This includes the eyelids, eyebrows, eye socket/orbit and tear duct/lacrimal system. Dr. Lin's research interests include evaluating surgical outcomes and the orbital-globe relationship.
