What are orbital inflammations?
Orbital infections and inflammations are those that can be caused by a previous injury or a systemic disease.
How is it diagnosed?
- A full ophthalmological examination and eyelid and periocular examination
- Photos are taken to assess the patient’s condition before and after treatment
- A feeling of heat in the eyelid
- Eyelid inflammation
- The patient sometimes complains of pain
Eye secretions are usually symptoms of external processes such as conjunctivitis or other infections or inflammation. They do not usually constitute a serious condition and can typically be treated with topical antibiotics.
In general, the patient can lead a normal life, unless there is gas inside the eye, in which case the patient should heed the advice of his doctor. Flying above 600–800 m and travelling over high mountain passes, either by train or car, should be avoided. If such needs arise, the ophthalmologist should be consulted.
