Orbital Disease & Surgery

Orbital tumors and Orbital fractures

Dr. Schiller has extensive experience treating fractures and tumors of the orbit. Surgery today is generally performed with minimal or no skin incision, through the inside of the eyelid. These procedures are performed in a hospital or surgical center, usually under general anesthesia. Most of these procedures are performed as an outpatient.

Orbital Decompression

Some patients with Graves’ disease require orbital decompression, either to protect the vision, improve comfort, or improve their appearance by letting the eyes go back into the orbit. Dr. Schiller is pleased to be able to offer state-of-the-art minimal incision orbital decompression with the incisions placed inside the eyelids. Recovery is remarkably fast with minimal bruising and no external scar.
