Do you happen to feel a burning, uncomfortable sensation in your eye, or a redness in your eyes, that doesn't go away, by any means?
If yes, then you might have an orbital disease. The best thing you can do after noticing some of the symptoms is to go get an eye check up with an oculoplastic & orbital surgeon immediately.
The orbital diseases are problems of the orbit, the bony cavity which surrounds the eyes and protects the eyeball, the eye muscles, the ocular nerves and the blood vessels. The orbit ensures that your eye will stay healthy and protected, but there are times when the orbit itself will have diseases affecting it, as it is susceptible to infections, cancers & tumors, orbital diseases and injuries. There are many orbital diseases, and many of them are vision and life threatening. Through the most important ones are the Thyroid eye disease and the orbital tumors like cavernous hemangioma and orbital lymphoma.
Depending on the type of orbiotal disease, The orbital diseases are treated with pills, drops, and most efficiently, with orbital surgeries, or a combination of all these treatments.
Thyroid Eye Disease, also known as the Thyroid Orbitopathy or Thyroid Ophthalmopathy or Graves' Disease, is an autoimmune disease that affects the orbit. It leads to protrusion of the eye (proptosis), eyelid retraction and a displacement of the eye, in almost any direction. It is
an autoimmune disease, which is noted in patients with too high or too low thyroid hormones. Basically, the immune system attacks the thyroid gland, in this disease. The disease, however can also cause damage to the eye; the immune system can attack not only the thyroid gland, but also the eye, the orbital tissues the eye socket, causing a displacement of the eye, eyelids opened too wide or double vision.
The Orbital tumors are tumors or orbital masses, that appear anywhere within the orbit. The orbital tumors can appear anywhere in the orbit, and they lead to the displacement of the eyes - basically, the eyes can look bigger, a disease called proptosis, or they are lower or higher than normal. This kind of tumor is very dangerous, as if is not treated in time, it can lead to the complete loss of the sight (orbital neoplasma like cavernous hemangioma), and even life in malignant tumors (cancers like orbital lymphoma).
Orbital diseases need examination by an orbital and Oculoplastic surgeon. Orbital & eyelid surgeons have a super-specialty fellowship training, post an ophthalmology (eye surgeon) training. A surgery called an orbitotomy is performed to remove orbital tumors. Orbital decompression surgery can be used to reduce extreme protrusion (proptosis of the eyes).
The recovery period after these type of orbital diseases treatment is a bit longer and it requires a different care and attention from you. After getting through an orbital surgery, in order to treat an orbital disease, the eyes need to be protected from the sunlight and cleaned every day, following the exact advice of the doctor. Medication is also usually prescribed, and sometimes it’s recommended to use sunglasses or eye patches to hide some unwanted effects of the surgery, such as bruises or swelling. The bruises or swelling goes away in a few days, but the full recovery can take from two weeks to even a few months.
Orbital surgeries / orbitotomies & orbital decompression surgery can be done at The Esthetic Clinic by Dr. Debraj Shome, a top oculoplastic surgeon & expert in the field.
There are situations in which an eye removal surgery (enucleation) is needed. That is the most complicated and difficult surgery that can be done to the eye, as it basically consists in removing various components of the eye: the iris, the cornea, the entire eyeball, or in extreme cases, the muscles and eyelids as well. After the surgery is done, there's a special recovery period for it, of 4 to 6 weeks, in which the eye needs to heal. After having healed, an artificial eye can replace the one that got enucleated or removed. These days with the advent of technology, the artificial eyes look almost like regular eyes, they move and appear to be the same as the other eye.
Our eyes tend to draw the most focus in our faces. Any impairment in vision leads to physical discomfort as well as mental anxiety. In the case of tumors of the eyes, extensive surgery may be required to treat or reconstruct the orbit. Reconstructive surgery is a way of correcting deformities in our facial features. Orbital tumor surgery is one such procedure which corrects the shape, size and formation of the orbit.
