 Orbit & Oculoplasty Clinic

This clinic is devoted to the ailments that pertain to orbit and those that need oculoplasty. Surgical treatment of diseases like ptosis, socket repair, ectropion, entropion etc are done here. Dr. Abraham Kurian, MS, DO is in charge of this clinic.

Orbit

The cavity in the skull that contains the eye is called the orbit,which is  formed from parts of frontal, sphenoid,zygomatic, lacrymal, ethmoid, palatine and maxillary bones.

Oculoplasty

Patients of all ages may need Oculoplasty, i.e. eyelid and facial reconstructive surgery for needs that are purely cosmetic or functional. The most advanced and innovative techniques of facial and eyelid surgery for such conditions as excess upper eyelid skin that obstructs vision (bleharoplasty), eyelid ptosis (droopy eyelids), entropion(eyelid folds inwards),  ectropion (eyelids turned outwards), problems of the tear ducts, and thyroid eye disease.

Blepharoplasty

A short surgery done to remove excess upper eyelid skin hanging down over the eyelashes which may or may not interfere with vision.

Ectropion

It is a condition where the lower eyelid turns outward causing redness, irritation, watery eyes, infection, crusting, vision impairment, and damage to the cornea (surface of the eye). This is usually a result of facial aging, injury, tumour, or Bell’s Palsy. The surgeon corrects it by doing the needful to the supporting tissues and muscles around the eyelid.

Entropion

Here the eyelashes  rub against the eye, as the eyelid turns inwards. Caused by laxity of the eyelid and/or spasm of the eyelid muscle, it may produce tears, infection, resulting vision impairment, and even damage to the cornea (surface of the eye). Repair of the supporting structures of the eyelid by an oculoplastic surgeon easily corrects the problem.

Eyelid Ptosis

It makes the upper eyelid droop, the cause of which may be injury to the muscle, congenital defect, muscle disorders, nerve disorders, or aging. It can impair vision when severe and create a tired or aged appearance. Children may require early correction to prevent development of a ‘lazy eye’, if this obstructs the line of vision.

THYROID EYE DISEASE

It makes the upper eyelid droop, the cause of which may be injury to the muscle, congenital defect, muscle disorders, nerve disorders, or aging. It can impair vision when severe and create a tired or aged appearance. Children may require early correction to prevent development of a ‘lazy eye’, if this obstructs the line of vision.

LACRIMAL SYSTEM

Watery eyes  can sometimes  be due to blockage in the  passages of tear drainage,which can be surgically corrected by endoscopic  or external surgeries.

ORBITAL TUMOURS

Orbital tumors can be benign or malignant and arise primarily within the orbit or secondarily from an adjacent source, such as the eyelid, paranasal sinus, or intracranial compartment. They are seen in both adults and children and is surgically removed,when possible
