Orbit cavity


Definition

The orbit cavity is that in which the eye is set in the cranium. The face has two orbital cavities to accommodate both eyes. More specifically, the orbital cavity is made up of seven bones: the frontal, lacrimal, zygomatic, sphenoid, maxilla, palatal, and ethmoid bones. Exophthalmos is the primary pathology affecting the orbit. It refers to the eye bulging out of its socket. This condition may be unilateral or bilateral.
