Is it too late to get orbital decompression?
Doctor Answers 4
You would still be able to undergo orbital decompression, assuming that your left eye is more proptotic from enlargement of fat or muscle in the eye socket. Of course, doing the decompression would affect the eyelid position again so you may need further revision of the eyelid afterwards, but if you are still noticing a large difference due to the globe position, that would be the best option. I would suggest seeing an oculoplastic surgeon with extensive orbit training.
