Orbital Decompression

Orbital decompression is a type of eye socket surgery that involves removing bone, fat, or other tissue from the eye socket to create more room for the eye and alleviate pressure on the eye and surrounding structures. This procedure is typically performed for patients with eye conditions such as Graves’ disease, shallow orbit (eye socket), exophthalmos, or other conditions that cause bulging of the eye.

Medical Reasons for Orbital Decompression:

Graves’ disease
Tumors in the eye socket
Other conditions that cause eye bulging

The benefits of Orbital Decompression surgery include:

It’s important to keep in mind that individual results may vary and that it’s always best to consult with a qualified eye specialist or plastic surgeon to determine if orbital decompression is the best option for your specific needs and medical history.

Recovery and Aftercare:

After the procedure, patients may experience some swelling and redness, as well as some discomfort and tearing. To minimize these symptoms, it’s important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your surgeon, which may include applying cold compresses and avoiding activities that may irritate the eye.

Orbital decompression is a safe and effective procedure that can provide numerous benefits for those who suffer from eye bulging and pressure. If you’re considering this procedure, be sure to consult with a qualified eye specialist or plastic surgeon who specializes in eye socket surgery. They can help determine if orbital decompression is right for you and answer any questions you may have about the procedure and the recovery process.
