The term "orbit" refers to the bones and tissues that
surround the eye. If the orbit is damaged, surgical
repair may be needed to protect the eye and preserve
vision if possible. Orbital surgery may also be necessary
in case of a tumor. Tumors tend to make the eye protrude,
which can lead to irritation, dryness, and risk of
infection as well as a deformed appearance. Orbital
trauma, on the other hand, can make the eye sink back
in its socket, causing vision loss and facial deformity.
An orbital surgeon can remove, rearrange, or reconstruct
the bony plates of the orbit to try to preserve vision
and an aesthetically normal appearance.
The axiom of orbital surgery is to
restore the anatomic structure of the orbit to its
natural and aesthetic form with preservation of function.
Accurate realignment and replacement of the components
are essential. To have an optimal result, the surgeon
has to have a fundamental appreciation of the orbital
anatomy. Even though orbital anatomy is complex, with
some details still being actively researched, adherence
to several anatomic principles will aid in the restoration
of the traumatized orbit.
The Orbit (eye and surrounding bones)
can be adversely affected by tumor, and is one of
the primary regions affected by facial trauma. Orbital
trauma resulting in fractures of the bone surrounding
the eye causes the eye to sink back into its socket,
facial deformity, poor eye movement, and loss of vision.
Orbital fractures can now be repaired with minimal
incisions through the inside of the eyelid or mouth.
While orbital fractures cause the eye to sink back,
orbital tumors can cause the eye to protrude, causing
facial deformity, eye irritation, dryness, increased
risk of infection, and loss of vision. In severe cases
of orbital trauma or tumor, it is sometimes necessary
to remove the eye completely.
