Orbital Surgery

Orbital Surgery

Orbital Reconstruction

  • Enucleation and Evisceration - An enucleation is the removal of the eye. An evisceration involves the removal of the contents of the eye leaving the muscles and scleral tissue, or the white part of the eye. We most often perform this procedure when there is either a tumor or other type of eye infections under general anesthesia in an outpatient facility or hospital. Patients will wear an eye patch for 1 week after surgery. Patients must avoid strenuous activity or heavy lifting for 1 week. Patients may return to work typically within 5-7 days.

  • Thyroid Eye Disease - Thyroid eye disease is an autoimmune disease that involves a variety of changes in the tissues around the eyes. Usually, patients with this condition have Graves disease, or autoimmune hyperthyroidism, but thyroid eye disease may also be seen in patients with a low (hypothyroid) or normal thyroid. Patients with thyroid eye disease commonly have eye bulging (proptosis), eyelids that are too open (eyelid retraction), and dry eyes. Patients can also have eyelid swelling, double vision, eye redness, eye pain or aching, inability to close the eyes, and rarely vision loss.
  • Orbital Tumors - Orbital tumors are abnormal growths in the eye socket (orbit) that can either be malignant or benign. These may be visible under the skin, and they might also push on the eye to cause eye bulging (proptosis), double vision, or blurry vision. Often imaging with CT scan or MRI is needed to evaluate completely the extent of the tumor.
