What does it involve?
Orbiculectomy is a type of surgery that weakens the muscles that cause the forced and involuntary closure of the eyelids.
When is it carried out?
In severe cases and in cases that do not respond well to botulinum toxin.
A comprehensive eyelid examination is required.
Before the surgery
Patients should not take anticoagulants or aspirin before surgery.
The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and, in some cases, sedation.
In some cases, it is necessary to continue with botulinum toxin injections as an associated therapy.
