Orbital hypertelorism as defined by increased bony interorbital distance is a complex manifestation of many congenital anomalies. As such, it is associated with a multitude of orbital, adnexal, and surrounding soft-tissue deformities. Treatment of these problems requires extensive experience and a comprehensive team, permitting adequate preoperative evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment. The results obtained may be dramatic. The overall safety of the procedures has been demonstrated. Continued refinements and long-term follow-up will undoubtedly continue to make significant improvements.
