CORRECTING AND PERFECTING

Orbital surgery seeks to correct the effect of disease, accidents and simple aging by correcting irregularities of the areas surrounding the orbital bone, such as the eyelids or brows.

Thyroid Eye Disease

One of the most common conditions requiring surgery is thyroid eye disease.

 

Often the cause of bulging of one or both eyes, it is associated with autoimmune thyroid disorders, most commonly Graves’ disease, and may lead to a loss of vision, double vision, orbital pain, ocular redness and irritation and dry eye symptoms. Corrective surgery can include orbital decompression to restore normal eye position and relieve pressure, eye muscle surgery for double vision, and eyelid surgery to normalize lid position. Patients may need one, two or all three types of procedures, or none at all, depending upon the severity of the disease.
