Orbital Decompression: FAQs Beverly Hills, CA
Procedures for Eye Beverly Hills CA

Factors like genetics or particular types of medical conditions can cause a situation where the bony eye socket (“orbit”) isn’t large enough for the eye. This can lead to problems like impaired vision or “bulging” in the eyes. Fortunately, Orbital Decompression can help!

Is orbital surgery invasive?
Until the 90s, orbital decompression had to be performed through the facial skin around the eyes. Now, it can be performed through the nostrils to eliminate possible scarring.
Can bulging eyes affect my vision?
Yes. Even if you’ve never had problems with your eyesight before, compression of the eyes can cause gradual worsening (progressive) vision problems.
Is orbital decompression a risky surgery?
If you’re not seeing an experienced oculoplastic expert, yes. You need to see a specialist who is trained in eye reconstruction surgery.
How much does orbital decompression treatment cost?
We can provide you with a rough estimate over the phone, but for an accurate quote you will need to have a full assessment in our office.
How does an orbital decompression work?
Usually a decompression surgery involves removing some of the bone in the eye socket, widening it and thereby taking pressure off your eyes.
What medical conditions are linked with compressed eyes?
Some of the most common health conditions that tend to be associated with a small orbit include Graves disease and thyroid disease. Although these can occur at any time, they particularly affect individuals between 50-70 years of age.

If you’ve suffered from bulging eyes or have been told that you need to have orbital decompression, schedule a consultation with our oculoplastic surgery expert in Beverly Hills, Dr. Kami Parsa.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
