Orbital Tumor Treatment in
San Antonio, TX

Orbital tumors — tumors that affect the area around the eyes — can range from unsightly protrusions to serious threats to your health. If you or a loved one are experiencing any unexplained lumps around the eyes or bulging of the eyes themselves, you should schedule an appointment immediately. Most orbital tumors can be removed safely with no long-term effects, but the earlier we address it, the better your outcomes can be.

At Parkhurst NuVision, our expert eye surgeon and dedicated surgical team will use state-of-the-art technology to remove any orbital tumors and leave natural-looking results!

What Are Orbital Eye Tumors?

The phrase “orbital tumor” can describe a wide range of growths that develop around the “orbit,” the bony socket of your skull that houses your eye. These can also include tumors on the eyelid.

While malignant tumors are always a cause for concern wherever they are on your body, even benign orbital eye tumors are a cause for concern. This is because everything within the orbit is delicate — the eye, but also the muscles, nerves, and other tissues that help the eye function. Anything that bulges into those sensitive structures can damage the eye and cause vision loss.

Orbital Tumor Signs and Symptoms

Orbital Tumor Signs and Symptoms

Depending on the location and type, orbital tumors can have very different symptoms. If you experience one or more of the following, schedule a consultation with us as soon as possible:

  • Bulging of the eye
  • Swollen or sagging eyelid
  • Issues using both eyes together
  • Blurry, lost, or double vision
  • Loss of sensation around the eye
  • Eye pain
  • Visible lumps around the eye

How Does Orbital Eye Tumor Surgery Work?

Because there are so many different types, sizes, locations, and severities of orbital tumors, there is no single surgical plan. In some cases, it’s as simple as removing a tumor on the eyelid and resealing your skin for a natural-looking recovery. In other cases, we may need to carefully operate within the orbit, which requires an expert hand and extremely thorough surgical plan of action.

This is why you want an experienced eye surgeon to perform your procedure — you want someone who can find the safest and most effective way to treat and remove your tumor!

While the most involved surgeries may require up to a week in the hospital and slightly over a month of recovery, in many cases both the procedure and healing are much quicker.

When I had my evaluation, Gabriel was very nice and compassionate. I felt very comfortable. I then met with Gena who explained the financial end of things to me and broke everything down so I could understand. I scheduled the surgery for the one that best fit me. I came back for surgery less than a week later and one day after day after my vision is incredible! I am seeing 20/20! I can't even remember the last time I saw this good! I am so excited about getting my second eye done! Everyone here was great and so helpful!

My vision was blurry and dull before surgery. I thought it was the best I was ever going to see. Now that I’ve have surgery I started seeing colors much more vibrant and sharper! Everything was just so clear and crisp! Since day 1 it has just gotten better and better! Dr.Mueller was so incredible, he made the surgery so comfortable! The staff was amazing and made me feel so comfortable because I was so nervous but it was amazing all the way around! I now have both eyes done and I am so excited! Not only am I seeing better I am walking better because I can see where I am going!

This was such an easy, yet life changing, decision! The entire staff is patient, answers all questions, and is knowledgeable about each part. Dr. Parkhurst is so confident, professional, and comforting all at the same time. My eyes aren’t tired/dry at night, I can nap without having to remove my contacts, I can see details across a room, and I can swim with no worries of losing my contacts. Thank you Jesus that I was lead to Dr. Parkhurst and his team. I now have 20/15 vision!

I was SUPER nervous to get LASIK. I had actually been putting it off for years but finally decided just to get it done. I called Parkhurst NuVision and they got me in super quick. Everyone was nice and helpful. They helped me feel at ease with the entire process from the first consultation to my last follow up appointment. They were super professional and quick… answered all of my questions and addressed all of my concerns. I loved this experience from start to finish and I’m so glad I decided to go with Parkhurst for my LASIK.

I’ve been wearing glasses for 15-16 years and after being referred by my optometrist then chickening out, I finally took a leap and got LASIK done with NuVision.I can 100% say it is the greatest thing I could’ve ever agreed to do for my eyes. NuVision has been able to communicate everything from how to prep before and after LASIK to what the procedure is going to be like the same day of. Thanks to them, I can see 20/20 and no longer need heavy glasses to get around in my day to day life. For anyone who is second guessing if this is the right choice for them, I say go for it! You will NOT regret it and you will love your new eyes and I can assure you, you are in wonderful hands with Parkhurst NuVision.
