In addition, extension study of the tumour is conducted

During the Operation

  • This treatment is carried out in the operating theatre of the out-patient’s unitia
  • During the operation, the surgeon removes the patient’s periocular and orbital contents

After the operation

  • The surgeon occludes the patient’s eye for 24 hours and the patient must also take antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Ice must be applied to the treated area during the first few weeks
  • It is also important to have enough rest for the first few days and avoid picking up heavy objects and taking exercise
