Orbital Surgery

Orbital surgery is the treatment of issues surrounding the orbital areas of the eye which include the eye socket and eye muscles along with some fat, blood vessels and nerves.


Specific surgery that may be required:

  • Drainage of orbital abscesses and haematomas

  • the repair of fractures to the orbit and surrounding area

  • the removal of tumours of the orbit

  • orbital decompression which is usually required for severe thyroid eye disease

  • on occasions it will mean the complete removal of the eye under severe cases of eye malignancy 

The majority of orbital procedures will be performed under a general anaesthetic and will require an over-night stay in the hospital. 

Please do discuss any concerns with your consultant prior to any procedure. 

In many cases you will need to take an extended leave from work while the post operation rehabilitation takes place, the length of the absence will depend on the severity of any procedure. Our consultants will advise each patient both prior to the operation and post op with regard to their options and requirements. 

Many of these procedures will be covered by private medical insurance but patients are advised to check with the provider prior to any treatment.

If you are paying for your own treatment all costs will be discussed and explained prior to any treatment taking place. This will be confirmed in writing along with any surgeon fees, anaesthetist fees and hospital charges prior to admission.
