Orbits and Plastics
Orbits and plastics are typically used to correct problems with the skin or muscle around the eye. Droopy or floppy eyelids; cysts, chalazion or other growths around the eye; or side effects from Grave's disease (a thyroid disorder) are common eye problems that benefit from orbits and plastics. These surgical techniques use implants to correct tissue around the eye or replace tissue that might need to be removed. Surgeons who work in the specialized area of orbits and plastics are often the same physicians who deal with cancer in the eye.
