Successful Eyelid Surgery. The Procedure Was an Absolute Success - San Diego, CA

Dr. Bobby Korn was an absolute pleasure! His personality, professionalism, efficiency, etc. all gave me great confidence in his ability. I could not be more pleased and satisfied with this surgical outcome. I didn't realize how difficult it was for me to see until my procedure was performed, enabling me to now see more easily, comfortably, and clearly. Additionally, though it was not my primary objective, my appearance has improved immensely. Thank you to Dr. Korn, his staff, and the group at UCSD Shirley Eye Institute.

Great Results!

I felt confident going into my eyelid surgery with Dr. Korn as he was a member of a team of doctors at UCSD Shiley Eye Center that successfully treated my husband for Graves Disease of the eyes. I had great results with a quick recovery and minimal scarring. I look and feel younger as a result of my surgery. Dr. Korn is a confident and skilled surgeon with an upbeat and positive manner.

Eyelid and brow lift

After I began having vision obstruction at about the age of 65, Dr. Korn did a brow and eyelid lift procedure for me. I have been very happy with the good result. Not only did my vision improve, but Dr. Korn was also very careful to avoid any visible facial scarring. He also worked hard to keep the brows and eyelids even in appearance. Last but not least, he has a very informative, warm,...
