“Seeing well. Looking even better.”


Oculoplastic & Reconstructive Surgery is a specialization within Ophthalmology that focusses on the diagnoses and treatment of the ocular adnexa. This consists of all pathology of the eyelids, tear production and drainage system and the bony orbit that houses the eye and the ocular muscles as well as aesthetic treatments of the eyelids and face.

"Dr. van der Veen explained me very clearly how the surgery would be performed and I immediately decided to put me in his hands. The result looks perfect and his manners are flawless. I recommend him 100%."  Upper eyelid blepharoplasty; Lidia, Barcelona.

Our Barcelona based Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery practice offers a comprehensive service of aesthetic and functional treatments in the area surrounding the eyes, such as upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty, brow lift, midface lift, Botox, treatment of skin lesions such as cysts or benign tumors of the eyelids and face, tearing eyes and more. We also function as a reference center for surgical treatment and reconstruction of skin cancer lesions on or around the eyelids and we perform revision surgeries of patients that have had eyelid surgery elsewhere. Moreover we perform advanced eye socket reconstructive surgery for people with an artificial eye.

We take a personalised approach in all aspects of our services, because we understand how delicate it is to have your eyes and face treated. We have a professional and emphatic team in both our Barcelona and Utrecht offices. Mr. van der Veen himself is a highly trained surgeon with excellent credentials, is both pragmatic and empathic and is known for his warm bedside manner.

“I grew up in the Netherlands, where I was trained as an Ophthalmologist and Oculoplastic and Orbital Surgeon. I practiced for a decade in the Netherlands before moving to Spain. The combination of my Dutch training and pragmatism and the Mediterranean warmth and approachability, make for a very pleasant patient experience.”
