are also those who do not know that a relatively short time operation can be
used to correct protruded eyes. In addition, there are patients who want to get
out of the complex but give up surgery because of worries.
are surgeries that may correct the protruded eyes as the patient wants. It is
the orbital expansion surgery
Orbital expansion surgery does
not make camouflage effect of setback of eye, but to directly put the
protruding eye back. In particular, there is no hindrance to eyesight after
surgery since it safely protects the eyes. Some patients have a better visual
acuity after recovery because they lower the intraocular pressure during the
surgical procedure. It is very satisfactory because it solves the protrusion of
the eye fundamentally without any functional impairment.
look at the advantages of orbital expansion surgery more, the surgery is done by
incising the conjunctiva inside the eye so that the external scar can not be
seen. It also minimizes nerve and muscle damage by using special equipment that
selectively control orbital bone. The operation time is short due to the
clinical know-how of about 10 years together with the special equipment that
adds safety, and the low hemorrhage anesthesia which improves the surgical
field. The average time is about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
in the case of high-level low-hemorrhage anesthesia, the blood pressure is
temporarily lowered, and blood is less likely to occur during the operation. This
can improve the visual field and end the surgery quickly. Less bleeding, less
swelling and less pain. Naturally, it is also very helpful for quick recovery.
Dr. Peter Kim in EFIL center, "orbital expansion surgery
has already become popular, and the operation time is short and safe. The
patients can return to the daily life after an average of one week with less
swelling " and "It is possible to make landmark corrections, so we
are constantly visiting not only Koreans but also overseas patients with
protruded eye" he said.
