Orbital decompression operation surgery is often performed to create more space in the orbit. It can be accomplished by surgically removing or sculpting the bones that comprise the orbit.

Surgeons may operate on some or all of the orbital walls: medial wall, orbital floor or lateral wall.

Once the orbit has been expanded, fat can be seen to extend into the adjacent sinuses (see the Clinical tab).
