The orbit of the eye is the boney socket that houses the eyeball and other tissue that supports eye function, such as fat, muscle, and nerves. Problems affecting the orbital area, such as tumors, trauma-related injuries, and thyroid eye disease, can put pressure on the eye, potentially leading to permanent loss of vision. Because of the sensitivity of the eye area, orbital procedures must be performed by specially trained surgeons.
For years, patients throughout the Clearwater, Florida area have trusted their eyes to Dr. Geoffrey M. Kwitko, M.D. F.A.C.S. As a Clinical Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of South Florida and Editor-in-Chief of the Electronic Journal of the Neuro-Ophthalmic Surgical Society, he is committed to employing the latest research and innovative technologies with each orbital surgery procedure.
Orbital Decompression Surgery
Patients with Graves’ Disease, which causes over-activity of the thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism), sometimes experience inflammation of the orbital area which can cause discomfort and lead to permanent vision problems if not addressed.
Surgical treatment for thyroid eye disease (TED) can include surgery on the eye muscles to correct double vision, eyelid surgery to correct retraction, and orbital decompression surgery for more advanced cases of TED.
Orbital decompression surgery involves relocated the bones surrounding the eye to relieve pressure on the optical nerve caused by inflamed tissue.
