Any type of damage or trauma to the bony eye socket (orbit) can be serious because it houses all of the components that support healthy eye function:
- Blood vessels
- Optic nerves
- Fat to protect and cushion the eye
Eye socket problems can lead to eye pain, swelling, vision loss, facial numbness, sunken eyes or double vision. Our orbital surgeons can diagnose and repair eye socket problems caused by:
- Thyroid eye disease
- Orbital or intraocular tumors
- Inflammatory and infectious conditions
Treatment may include removal of tumors, reconstruction of the orbit or removal of an eye in severe cases. If you are experiencing any vision problems, a comprehensive eye exam is the only way to determine the root cause of your problems.
