SCRANTON, PA, October 23, 2019 /Neptune100/ — Northeastern Eye Institute (NEI) announced on Monday that Dr. Joseph Giacometti is the newest eye specialist to join the practice. Dr. Giacometti specializes in plastic and reconstructive surgery of the eyes and upper face. He serves patients at the NEI offices in Scranton and Forty Fort, Pennsylvania.

“There is no more prestigious eye care practice in the area than NEI,” Dr. Giacometti said. “As a native of Northeastern Pennsylvania, I am proud to be practicing in the region I call home at one of the most trusted local names in eye health and vision correction.”

Dr. Giacometti earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Pennsylvania and completed medical school at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. He received specialty training in ophthalmology at Yale University, followed by a fellowship in ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery in Houston at Baylor College of Medicine.

Certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, Dr. Giacometti is also a member of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. According to the ASOPRS website, this elite organization only admits board-certified ophthalmologists and other physicians who are “highly trained and uniquely qualified to improve facial beauty and function while protecting ocular health and vision.”

Dr. Giacometti performs a wide range of oculoplastic surgery procedures. These include cosmetic brow lift and blepharoplasty, which can not only rejuvenate the appearance of the eyelids but correct vision issues stemming from eyelids that droop with age. Other oculofacial procedures Dr. Giacometti performs include reconstruction of the eyelid and eye socket, biopsy and excision of tumors around the eye, tear duct surgery for improved tear production, and more.

Dr. Giacometti also has experience performing non-surgical facial rejuvenation via injections of BOTOX Cosmetic and premium fillers like Restylane to create a more youthful appearance for patients who are concerned about crow’s feet, furrowed brows, and other lines and wrinkles.
