Can Orbital Box Osteotomies Move My Eyes Further Apart?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m curious are there any surgeries to make the eyes look further apart? I know an orbital box osteotomy actually moves the eyes further apart but that’s a obviously a very invasive surgery for a couple of mms.

A: Whether it is 2mm or 10mms the only way to physically move the eyes further apart is with the orbital box osteotomies. Admittedly the lesser the amount of separation needed the more the orbital box osteotomies is a solution that is much bigger than the problem merits.
