The specialists at Orbit Eye Center are dedicated to providing the most advanced treatments for a wide range of conditions affecting the eyes. Click on the below links to learn more about the various conditions affecting your eyes and their treatment options.

Tear Duct Surgery for Adults

The tear system consists of 3 parts, the lacrimal glands that produce the tear fluid, the openings in the eyelids that let the tears flow out of the eye, and the duct system inside the nose where the tears drain .

Tear Duct Treatment for Children

Tearing is a natural function of the eye and it serves the purpose of lubricating and cleaning your eye. Tears are made in the lacrimal glands (see image to the right). From the lacrimal glands, tears drain through two openings at the inner corner of the eyelids.

Strabismus Surgery

Strabismus also called crossed eyes, is a condition where both eyes do not focus on an object together and appear as if the eyes are looking in different directions. Strabismus surgery is a procedure that involves correction of the visual axes of the eyes, to make both the eyes focus parallel on an object (binocular vision).

Repair of Conjunctival and Corneal tear

A conjunctival and corneal tear is defined as damage or scratch caused on the delicate surface of the conjunctiva (a thin mucous membrane lining the inner surface of the eyelid) and cornea (transparent, protective tissue covering the white part of the eye).


Aesthetics is a specialty of oculoplastics that focuses on the outward appearance of the eye and surrounding eye structures. This includes mainly the eyelids and orbit. These are extremely complex structures that are vital to eyesight health and are important features of a normal facial appearance.

Treatment of Orbital or ocular Tumor

An enhanced understanding of ocular tumors and improved diagnostic capabilities in recent years has resulted in a variety of treatment options for orbital tumors.

Treatment of Ocular/Orbital trauma

Early repair of lid lacerations provides less edema and better protection of the corneal tissue. Your surgeon will administer anesthesia and clean the wound by irrigating it with saline solution. Foreign bodies present in your eye will be removed and injury to the lid margin and canthus (corner point where the eyelids meet) will be repaired.

Visual Field Testing

The visual field is a complete area that can be seen when your eyes focus on a single point; this comprises of objects that can be seen on either side and above and below the point that your eyes focus on.

Vision Therapy

Vision therapy is a new and emerging field within vision care. It is a therapeutic process much like physical therapy for the eye. The success of a visual therapy program is dependent on the active engagement of your child’s ophthalmologist, the child’s parents, and the child him/herself.

Eyebrow Transplant

The eyebrows play an important role in our facial appearance as Thinning or loss of eyebrows may occur due to burns, repeated plucking, disease conditions, hormonal imbalance or genetic defects. Eyebrow transplants can offer a permanent solution to the problem.

Eye Lengthening Surgery

Eye lengthening surgery or lateral canthoplasty is a surgery performed especially in Asians to increase the eye’s length from one corner to the other. It is performed at the outer corner of the eyelid margin.

Pediatric Ophthalmology

Pediatric ophthalmology is a branch of medicine which specializes in children’s eye care. Doctors in this specialty are referred to as pediatric ophthalmologists.

Treatments for Corneal Ulcers

If you wear contact lenses, your doctor will suggest that you discontinue them for some time. Antibiotic eye drops may be prescribed for corneal infections, and tear substitutes for dryness. Special eye drops that dilate the pupils or other medications may be prescribed to relieve pain. In case of severe corneal ulcers, you may need to be hospitalized.

General Eye Examination and Care

The General eye examination is more than just getting your eyes checked for a lens prescription. It involves several tests to check your eyes for vision and for any eye disease.

Treatment of Eyelid disorders

Entropion is an inward turning or rolling of the eyelid which is rarely seen in babies and more common in the elderly due to aging and weakening of the eyelid muscles. There are various surgical techniques for treating entropion.


Corticosteroids are anti-inflammatory compounds. Any stress, injury or surgical trauma to the eye results in inflammation. This can be treated by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or corticosteroids. Corticosteroids play a prominent role in treating inflammatory conditions of the eye.

Orthoptist Testing

Orthoptist tests are diagnostic tests performed to assess certain conditions like a squint, lazy eye, double vision, eye movement disorders, cataract, glaucoma, refractive errors, vision disabilities caused due to neurological disorders and diabetic eye diseases.

Comprehensive Motor and Sensory Assessment for Special Needs

A comprehensive motor and sensory assessment for special needs are diagnostic tests conducted in children with special needs who have ophthalmologic conditions. Special needs children can be defined as ones with neuromotor disorders such as autism and down’s syndrome.

Low Vision Aids

Low vision aids are special devices designed to assist individuals with low vision to see and read. These devices provide better magnification properties as well as higher-quality optics to improve visual performance in people with visual impairments.

Artificial Eyes

An artificial eye, also known as a prosthetic eye or ocular prosthesis, is a treatment option for individuals who have lost their eyes due to an injury or disease condition and involves implantation of the artificial eye into the eye socket after removing the damaged natural eye.

ERG And VEP Assessment Machine

Electroretinography (ERG), also referred to as electroretinogram, is a diagnostic test that measures the electrical activity of the retina in reaction to a light stimulus.

10 warning signs of eye defects in children

Strabismus commonly termed as “crossed eyes” is a condition in which both the eyes do not align in the same direction when viewing the objects and thereby do not focus on the same object at a time. Normally, the muscles surrounding the eyes work together so that both the eyes point in the same direction at the same time.

Dry Eyes

Dry eyes, also called keratoconjunctivitis sicca, is a medical condition caused due to a lack of adequate tears in your eyes. As a result, your eyes aren’t properly lubricated, and you may feel discomfort such as a burning or stinging sensation in your eyes.

Burning Eyes

A burning sensation in the eye is often due to an underlying eye condition such as dry eye, blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelid) or pink eye (conjunctivitis).

Watery Eye

A watery eye or epiphora is generally seen in young babies and older people. In this condition, tears accumulate in the eyes due to a blockage in one or both tear ducts. As a result, excessive tears trickle down the face instead of draining from the tear ducts.

Color Blindness

Vision disorders are conditions that cause impairment in our sense of vision. These disorders are often caused by certain eye diseases or structural abnormalities of the eye. Abnormal color vision, also termed as color blindness, is the inability to differentiate between certain shades of color.


Inflammation of the eyelids is referred to as blepharitis. Blepharitis causes red, itchy, and swollen eyelids. The condition usually affects both eyes along the edges of your eyelids. Blepharitis can be difficult to treat sometimes. However, it does not cause any permanent damage to your eyesight.

Vision Disorders

Vision disorders are the conditions that cause impairment in the sense of vision. These disorders are often caused by certain eye diseases or structural abnormalities of the eyeballs.

Blurred Vision

Blurred vision is a condition associated with decreased sharpness of vision, resulting in difficulty seeing fine details. It may be unilateral (one eye) or bilateral (both eyes).

Allergic Disorders of the Eye

The eyes are the most complex sensory organ in our bodies. Allergies are a common disorder that affects the eyes. You may have eye allergies if your eyes itch, appear red, are tearing up or you feel burning. Eye allergies often affect the conjunctiva, the clear thin, membrane that covers the inside of your eyelids and the white part of your eye (sclera).


Hyphema is a condition in which blood accumulates in the front chamber of the eye, between the cornea (white of the eye) and iris (colored region of the eye). Since blood covers the iris and the pupil (Centre of the iris), your vision may be blocked partially or completely.

Temporal Arteritis

Temporal arteries are the blood vessels around the temple (side of the head behind the eyes) that supply blood to the head and brain. Temporal arteritis is a condition in which these blood vessels are damaged or inflamed. The condition may be caused by a faulty immune response, high doses of antibiotics or severe infections.

Squint in Children

Squint, also by its medical name, strabismus, is a common eye problem in children where the eyes do not line up perfectly together in the direction of sight. It is a condition that can be present right from birth or developed later on in childhood and even adulthood.

Tear Duct Obstruction

The tear duct is a membranous canal that drains the tears from the eyes into the nasal cavity. Blocked tear ducts also are known as dacryostenosis or congenital lacrimal duct obstruction is a common condition in infants that may affect one or both eyes.

Red Eye & Inflammation

A red eye condition in a child is most commonly due to conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis can be bacterial, viral, or allergic. Bacterial is painless and usually accompanied by discharge from the eye. Fortunately, it is a condition that is easily treatable with antibiotics.

Ocular/Orbital Tumors

Ocular tumor is a general term that includes the various types of tumors (abnormal mass of tissue) that can develop in different parts of the eye. An ocular tumor occurs when cells in or around the eye start to divide and multiply uncontrollably.

Ocular/Orbital Trauma

The eye is a delicate and sensitive organ. An injury to the eye from contact sports or a motor vehicle accident can often result in trauma to the orbit. The orbit is the bony cavity of the skull that surrounds and protects the eyeball and includes muscles and nerves attached to the eye.


A chalazion is a painless inflammation characterized by a lump or nodule formed on the upper or lower eyelid. A chalazion is non-communicable and usually does not affect vision, but a large lump can put pressure on the eye.

Inflammatory Orbital Disease

Inflammatory orbital disease, also called idiopathic orbital inflammatory syndrome and non-specific orbital inflammation, refers to eye disorders that involve the orbit. The orbit is the cavity in your skull that acts like a socket and contains the eyeball and supporting muscles and blood vessels.

Pediatric Eye Problems

Many pediatric eye problems, such as amblyopia, respond well to treatment when they are detected and treated early. If detected at a later stage, the pediatric eye problem will be difficult to treat, and your child may suffer some degree of permanent vision loss.

Eyelid Disorders

Entropion is a condition characterized by the inward folding of the eyelids (usually the lower lid). This can cause the eyelashes and skin to rub against the surface of the eye leading to irritation and damage to the eye. It can be congenital (present at birth), but rarely causes problems in babies as the eyelashes are so soft.

Eye Pain

Eye pain is a very common problem characterized by burning, aching, throbbing or stabbing feeling in and around the eye.

Chemical Burn

The exposure of your eyes to chemicals may cause burns. Chemical burns usually affect the front of the eye, causing pain, tearing, irritation, redness, swelling of the eyelids, inability to keep your eyes open, blurred vision, and a feeling of something in the eye.

Corneal Opacity

Corneal opacity is an eye disorder that occurs due to the scarring of the cornea, making the cornea appear cloudy or white. The cornea is a dome-shaped transparent structure on the front of the eyeball that allows light to pass into the eyes.

Corneal Ulcer

A corneal ulcer is an open sore that appears as a grey-to-white region on the cornea, the transparent structure covering the colored part (iris) of your eye. A corneal ulcer can result from bacterial, viral or fungal infections.

Eyelid Cyst

An eyelid cyst also referred to as chalazion or a meibomian cyst is a painless inflammation characterized by a lump formed on the upper or lower eyelid. An eyelid cyst is non-communicable and usually does not affect vision, but a large lump can put pressure on the eye.

Cone Dystrophy

Cone dystrophy, also called retinal cone degeneration and retinal cone dystrophy refers to a group of rare eye disorders which affect the light-sensitive cone cells of the retina.


Retinoblastoma refers to cancer of the retina, the light-sensitive layer of the eye which contains rods and cones to help us see in either dimly or brightly-lit settings. Retinoblastoma usually begins during childhood and may occur in one or both eyes.

Lazy Eye

Lazy eye, also known as amblyopia, is a developmental condition characterized by a decreased vision in one eye and inward or outward wandering of that eye as a result of abnormal visual development early in life. Lazy eye seldom affects both eyes. It normally develops from birth up to age seven and is the main cause of poor vision in children. Timely diagnosis and treatment can aid in preventing long-term issues with your child's eyesight. If left untreated, lazy eye can cause permanent vision loss.
