The bones that surround the eyes and the content within comprise the orbit. This area could be affected by trauma including fractures, as well as tumors of the orbit. In the case of fractures if left un-repaired the eye may result in sunken in appearance. Orbital fractures may be repaired through very small incisions hidden on the inside of the eyelid.
Orbital tumors are rare in the orbit, and can have both benign and malignant cause. They may make the eye appear to protrude or be displaced from its normal position. These tumors may be removed and accessed through very small incisions as well.
