At Sharp Sight (Group of Eye Hospitals) we have a designated department for Orbit and Oculoplasty to deal with diseases of the eyelids, tearducts and orbits (sockets), which includes aesthetic eyelid surgery, ocular reconstructive surgery, orbital cancer, orbital tumors, etc. We have a team of experienced Oculoplastic surgeons who are highly trained to treat even the most critical of eyelid and orbital problems including handling cosmetic procedures.
Orbital diseases generally deal with the tissues lying in the bony socket of the eye. Sometimes it may cause protruding eyeball due to which a patient is unable to blink properly or frequently. Orbital problems could be a result of infection, inflammation, tumor or trauma. Generally the most effective way to investigate these orbital diseases, especially in case of tumor or trauma is through CT scan and MRI as these may require surgical intervention.
A lid tumor may be a benign cyst, inflammation in form of styes or malignant lid tumor which can only be confirmed through a biopsy test. Malignant tumors generally need to be surgically removed and repaired using cosmetic surgery technique, of which medium and large sized tumors generally require reconstruction of eyelid which is followed by radiation technique. The treatment aims to preserve the lid functionality.
Eyelids provide a layer of protective sheath to our eyes. These also provide shape to our eyeballs and add beauty to our eyes. Thus, any injury caused to eyelids, be it due to accident or carelessness not only shows up on face but it also fails to cover the cornea completely and provide adequate lubrication. Depending on the kind of injury – if it’s platonic, penetrating or blunt and to what extent it has damaged the lid, our oculoplastic surgeon offers treatment to the wounds (if any) and repairs the injury so that the cosmetic appearance of lid looks normal.
At times due to obstruction or blockage in tear duct, your tears can’t drain normally, which often leaves you with a watery, irritated eye. This is also caused due to tumor pressing against tear duct and blocking it. Treatment depends on the cause of the blockage and the age of the affected person. However, if it’s caused due to tumor, then it’s early diagnosis means better and faster recovery.
There are a couple of common lid margin abnormalities like ectropion (where eyelid turns outwards), entropion (where eyelid turns inwards) and trichiasis (misdirection of eyelashes). These not only look unpleasant but also affect the proper functioning of the eye. These require immediate treatment by a skilled oculoplastic surgeon.
Ectropion is a condition commonly seen in elderly during which eyelid turns outward due to weakening of lid muscles thus affecting proper functioning of the eye. It generally affects lower eyelid of one or both eyes. Ectropion is commonly caused due to eye injury, burn or facial paralysis and besides looking cosmetically unpleasant, the condition causes excessive dryness or excessive tears, infection, irritation, red eye, etc. It needs immediate treatment by an experienced oculoplastic surgeon.
Entropion is a condition where eyelid tends to turn inward, therefore causing irritation to the eyes as the eyelashes end up scratching the cornea. Entropion which may affect either upper or lower lid is generally caused due to injury, burns or it could be a result of spasm, or ageing, etc. For permanent treatment, a corrective surgery only by an experienced oculoplastic surgeon is recommended.
During trichiasis eyelashes often turn inward and scratch the eyeball which causes irritation and results into eye infection called trachoma. The treatment often requires removal of misaligned lashes or corrective plastic surgery.
Ptosis or drooping of the upper eyelid is a condition that may affect one or both eyes. Ptosis may be mild or severe depending on how much is it covering the pupil. It can affect both children and adults, although it is associated with ageing. Depending on its severity and cause, Ptosis is treated surgically.
