Orbital Decompression

This procedure is a tried and tested method of addressing various diseases of the eyes. Orbital decompression deals with conditions that affect the orbit, or eye socket. When there is not enough space for the eye within the socket, a surgeon may need to remove some of the bone in the affected area. Up until the 90’s, orbital decompressions involved surgery performed from outside of the face. However, modern techniques allow for surgery where the bone is accessed through the nostrils.

When the orbital bones are affecting the eye, it can result in conditions such as bulging eyes or impairment of vision. Many conditions are progressive, meaning they will become worse as the sufferer ages. It is often therefore necessary to have small amounts of orbital bone removed so the eye socket better accommodates the eye. Orbital decompression is a fairly simple reconstructive procedure, so long as it is performed by a specialist.

Risks and Benefits

As with all surgeries, there are risks associated with orbital decompression. Further vision impairment can occur if the procedure is not carried out by a competent surgeon. Most doctors will refer you to a specialist who has extensive experience and training in this area of reconstruction surgery.

Dr. Kami Parsa is an accomplished reconstruction eye surgeon. He has performed numerous orbital decompression surgeries successfully. Dr. Parsa uses a comprehensive examination process to assess the needs of each individual patient. Each surgery plan is tailored to the needs of the individual, and a risk assessment is conducted before any surgery is recommended.

Contact the office of Dr. Kami Parsa for orbital decompression options. We can offer you a preliminary assessment over the phone. However, we will need to book a consultation to provide a full assessment and treatment plan.

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!
