Eye Socket Surgery

The orbit (eye socket) contains an intricately balanced system consisting of the eye itself, muscles, optic nerve, arteries, nerves, and surrounding tissues. Disease processes can affect the stability of this system causing pressure and swelling around or behind the eye. This can cause the eye to be pushed forward, resulting in pain, double vision, or even vision loss.

The indication for surgery depends upon the nature and progression of a given disease or process. Dr. Enzer performs many different types of eye socket surgeries, such as orbital decompression, orbital fracture repair, removal of a foreign body, incision and drainage of an abscess, excision or biopsy of a tumor, or treatment of vascular abnormalities.
