Reconstructive Surgery – Orbital Disease & Congenital Disorders
Orbital trauma, congenital disorders, and pediatric issues can all affect the health and appearance of the eye or eyes. Dr. Chaudhry offers reconstructive treatment solutions that can restore and enhance your natural appearance and your self-confidence.
We offer evaluation, diagnoses, treatment, and management of eyelid, tear duct, and orbital disorders, injuries, and anomalies. We can help patients of all ages including those who have abnormalities that are associated with congenital disorders, aging, trauma, previous surgery or disease.
Graves Eye Disease affects about half of those who currently have or had Graves disease. Graves Eye Disease is an autoimmune disorder that results in swollen, inflamed eyes, eyes that are red and watery, eye pain, and bulging eyes. Some patients may also experience blurry or doubled vision or a decreased ability to distinguish colors. While the condition tends to be self-limiting and can even improve once the thyroid condition has been treated, many patients continue to experience pressure and cosmetic symptoms. We offer treatments that can help reduce the discomfort and appearance of Graves Eye Disease.
Eye tumors are often linked to cancers that metastasized from other parts of the body, such as the breast or bowel. Primary eye tumors, or tumors that appear first in the eye, can include retinoblastoma and melanoma. Because eye tumors can spread to the optic nerve, damage vision, and metastasize throughout the body, accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment is critical. Treatment can vary based on the size of the tumor, the aggressiveness, and other factors. We are often able to remove tumors while minimizing vision damage or preserving vision completely. In some cases, advanced tumors may require more aggressive management.
Sports, car accidents, and even fist fights can result in orbital trauma, or damage to the bony socket of the eye. Orbital fractures can result in intraocular injuries and vision problems. Treatment may include surgery but may also include medication to control swelling, antibiotics, muscle restriction, or decongestants.
Pediatric Eye Care
Children often engage in rambunctious play and activities that can put their health at risk, which means that they may be more prone to eye trauma that includes orbital trauma, corneal abrasions, and other injuries that threaten their visual and general health. Children may also be susceptible to certain congenital pediatric eye issues, such as eyelid and tear duct deformities. We offer treatments that meet the unique needs of children in a safe, comfortable environment.
