Eye Movement & Orbit Disorders
Make Appointments & Get Care
What are Eye Movement & Orbit Disorders?
Orbit conditions refer to problems with the muscles and structures of the eye, including orbital tumors, fractures, drooping eyelids, and problems with tear glands.
Eye movement (or motility) conditions include alignment problems and uncontrolled blinking (blepharospasm).
UR Medicine's Treatments for Eye Movement & Orbit Disorders
Oculoplastics and orbital surgery is the discipline of ophthalmology primarily concerned with the surgical repair of the area in and around the eye. Oculoplastic and orbital surgeons (oculofacial plastic surgeons) restore or modify the muscles and structures of the eye to restore problems with vision. Pediatric ophthalmologists may also become involved, performing surgery on blocked tear ducts and performing muscle surgery to better align patients' eyes.
Surgical expertise at UR Medicine’s Flaum Eye Institute include:
- Treatment of orbital tumors
- Socket reconstruction
- Eyelid repair
- Orbital decompression
- Correction of paralytic strabismus
- Medically necessary Botox for uncontrolled blinking
- Pediatric and Adult Surgery for Crossed Eyes (Strabismus)
- Blocked Tear Ducts (Lacrimal) Surgery
