What Are Orbital Tumors?

Orbital tumors are abnormal growths found inside the eye socket, which is termed the orbital area. They can occur in both adults and children of any age and vary in size, shape, and severity. Orbital tumors can cause damage to the surrounding tissue and restrict movement of the eye if not treated properly. In some cases, they can even threaten one’s vision, which makes it important to have a professional evaluate your situation sooner rather than later. However, modern medical techniques exist that can effectively remove an eye socket tumor while preserving the eye’s health and function in most cases.

What Is Eye Socket Surgery Like?

Eye socket surgery is an outpatient procedure that requires the patient to be under general anesthesia in most cases. During the operation, Dr. Peck will make small incisions in the tissue and then remove any abnormal growths from inside the eye socket. Depending on the location of the tumor, she may also use special tools such as lasers or microscopic instruments to ensure that the tumor tissue is completely removed and can no longer pose a risk. While each procedure has some variation, Dr. Peck can provide you with a more concrete outline after evaluating your situation. You will never be in the dark about any aspect of a procedure when working with Dr. Peck.

Is There a Recovery Period?

After the surgery, patients will need to take things slow and follow their surgeon’s instructions. This includes taking medications such as antibiotics, using eye drops, or avoiding activities that could jar or irritate the eye. Patients should also attend regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Peck in order to monitor the progress of the recovery process. Dr. Peck and her staff are also here for you following your procedure, ready to provide any additional information or answer questions as needed.

Can an Orbital Tumor Come Back?

Although orbital tumor surgery can successfully remove tumors, there is a chance of recurrence, which depends on individual risk factors. Follow-up appointments and regular monitoring are important in order to identify any return of the tumor quickly and address it accordingly. Ideally, if there is a recurrence, you can treat it well before it presents as a problem.
