centre in the treatment of orbital disorders

What is it?

This kind of surgical procedure consists of recovering the anatomy of the orbit.

In which cases is it carried out?

  • Anophthalmic cavity
  • Enophthalmos

Previous examinations

  • A full ophthalmological examination and eyelid and periocular examination
  • Photos are taken to assess the patient’s condition before and after treatment
  • A Hertel test is conducted (also known as exophtalmometry). This consists of measuring the position of both eyes.
  • In addition, an orbital CT scan is also carried out.

During the surgical operation

This treatment takes place in the operating theatre of the out-patient’s unit. This surgical procedure can be carried out by means of various techniques, depending on each patient’s case. The most common are the following:

  • Skin graft
  • Fat graft
  • Insertion of “Medpor” or titanium plates

Depending on the surgical technique used, the surgeon extracts tissue from other parts of the patient’s body to then graft it into the orbit.

After the operation

  • The surgeon occludes the patient’s eye for 24 hours (however in some cases this occlusion may be extended to one week) and the patient must also take antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs.
  • Ice must be applied to the treated area during the first few weeks.
  • It is also important to have enough rest for the first few days and avoid picking up heavy objects and taking exercise.
