Orbital & Tear Duct Surgery
The orbit, or eye socket, is the part of the skull containing the eyeball and its associated structures (blood vessels, nerves, and muscles). Fatty tissue surrounding these structures acts as a cushion, protecting against injury. Infections, injury and disease can cause problems within the orbit. These disorders can ultimately affect the function of the eye.
Oculoplastic Surgeons of Oklahoma provides complete care for orbital socket disorders that are causing both functional and cosmetic problems, including:
- Orbital decompression
- Orbital fracture repair
- Excision of orbital mass
- Orbital infections
Tear Duct Surgery
Tears provide our eyes with nourishing moisture and help to combat irritation. When a blockage occurs in a tear drainage duct, an overflow of tears can occur. Bacteria can also collect inside the drainage system, leading to an infection.
When the nasolacrimal duct, the tube that drains tears into the nose, is blocked, a surgical procedure is usually required. During this procedure, called a DCR (dacryocystorhinostomy), a hole is created between the tear sac and the inside of the nose. This can help to restore the normal flow of tears out of the eye.
