Orbital tumors, whether benign or malignant, require prompt evaluation and treatment to prevent potential complications and preserve vision and orbital function. Dr. Kian Eftekhari, at Eyelid Center of Utah, specializes in the diagnosis and surgical management of orbital tumors, offering patients expert care and individualized treatment plans tailored to their unique needs.

Symptoms of an Orbital Tumor

The presence of an orbital tumor may manifest with various symptoms, including:

  • Blocked tear ducts
  • Partial loss of vision
  • Double or blurry vision
  • Swollen appearance around the eye
  • Difficulty closing the eye completely
  • Changes in eye position or movement
  • Changes in pupil size

Diagnosis of an Orbital Tumor

To accurately diagnose an orbital tumor, Dr. Eftekhari will conduct a comprehensive eye examination and may recommend a series of diagnostic tests, such as:

  • Dilation of the eye
  • Slit lamp examination
  • CT scan
  • MRI
  • Ultrasound
  • X-ray
  • Gonioscopy

If an orbital tumor is suspected, a surgical biopsy, known as an orbitotomy, may be performed to confirm the diagnosis and determine the tumor’s nature (benign or malignant).

Treatment of an Orbital Tumor

Treatment of an orbital tumor depends on various factors, including the tumor type, size, and location. Dr. Eftekhari will develop a personalized treatment plan, which may include:

  • Surgical removal of the tumor
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Immunotherapy

Surgery may be recommended to fully remove the tumor and preserve orbital function. Dr. Eftekhari utilizes advanced surgical techniques to minimize disruption to surrounding structures and optimize outcomes for patients undergoing orbital tumor removal.
