Quick facts about orbital tumour
An autoimmune disease that affects the tissues that nestle the eye, eyelids, socket etc. It causes the eyes to protrude unnaturally or causes the eyelids to retract. This fixed stare is commonly known as the ‘thyroid stare’, which can also manifest into serious loss of vision over time, apart from the undesirable look. A beautiful or handsome face can be marred by the protrusion of eyes, robbing it of the subtle covering of the eyelids. This tumour can be either primary or metastatic. In other words, a primary tumour is one that originates in the eye orbit area due to reasons that are yet to be established. Metastatic tumour, as the name suggests, is a malignant one that has spread from other cancer afflicted parts of the body.

The procedure calls for reconstruction and decompression.

It is important to note that the surgery may at times include procedures around the eyes itself.
