The orbit is the bony space around the eye socket. It encompasses the eye, the muscles that move the eye, fat that cushions the eye, the lacrimal (tear) gland, and the bones of the skull that protect the eye.
Common orbital diseases include thyroid eye disease (i.e. Graves’ disease), orbital fractures from trauma, and idiopathic orbital inflammation. Often these problems can be managed conservatively with medications or with no treatment at all. However, surgical intervention may be indicated for some diagnostic or therapeutic goals.
