Orbit and Oculoplasty

Orbit and Oculoplasty

What is Orbit & Oculoplasty?
 
Orbit refers to the eye-socket (the cavity in the skull that holds the eye) and the surrounding structures. Diseases of the Orbit may arise from within the eye-socket or might be a secondary condition arising out of an existing illness. While some of these issues could be cosmetic, quite a few of orbital problems might affect the regular functioning of the eyes. There’s sure relief for these conditions and oculoplasty is a cosmetic/reconstructive surgical procedure that comes to the rescue of patients with eye orbit problems.
