Customer Question

Please I like to know how to fix Orbital Deformity on my right eye?

Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

What caused your deformity?

Customer:

I do not know find out about almost two year and notice because it started to hurt and rubing the eye noticed a lump under the corner of eye lid

Dr. Rick :

Is it the corner by your nose or the other side?

Dr. Rick :

Upper or lower lids?

Customer:

the doctor today said if is fat???

Customer:

it is the outer

Dr. Rick :

Upper or lower lids?

Customer:

Upper and I notice a little of it on lower corner

Customer:

The pain I feel comes from behind my eye

Dr. Rick :

It sounds like you have orbital fat prolapse from a weak or torn orbital septum.

Dr. Rick :

This is a benign condition.


 


With age the thin, tough membrane (orbital septum) that keeps the normal fat pad in place behind your eye becomes weak and tears. When this happens you start to notice the swelling, or bags, under your eyes. It is nothing to worry about.


 


The only way to treat this problem is with surgery, called a blepharoplasty. Many times it can be done in a procedure room in the ophthalmologist’s office.


 

Dr. Rick :

It is difficult when you have two doctors telling you completely different things.

Customer:

I went to see a doctor out side of my insurance which told me that my both eyes almost does not move

Dr. Rick :

Are you saying that your eyes do not move normally? That you have to turn your head to see because both eyes no longer move?

Customer:

No look normal but my right eye also is turning in to the left side it started little by littlle a few year's ago

Dr. Rick :

Ok. Have you been examined by an ophthalmologist (MD)?

Customer:

My mother had same problem on her right eye "turning in"

Customer:

Yes today and last year

Customer:

But they do not give any explanation or if there is a chance to make it better or to correct it

Dr. Rick :

Your issues involve more then just orbital fat prolapse. Since you have got conflicting advice from two different ophthalmologists I suggest you, unfortunately, should see another ophthalmologist. This time you may want to make an appointment with an oculoplastic surgeon -- make it clear to her that you really want a good explanation of what is going on. You may want to bring someone you trust with you to this appointment and have them join you in the exam room.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?

Customer:

Can you tell me where should I go to have a good evaluation, my financial situation at this present time is very bad, but I likke to see what can I do

Customer:

yes sure it does

Dr. Rick :

Where in the USA are you located? Is it possible for you to get a referral to a kaiser oculoplastic surgeon? That would be the least expensive way for you to go given your insurance...

Customer:

I am at Canyon Lake, CA "Riverside count"

Dr. Rick :

let me check. be right back.

Customer:

OK I will call Kaiser monday to what I can get from them

Customer:

Ok

Dr. Rick :

The folks at Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA have excellent ophthalmologists in all the sub specialties available. Here is their website:
