The orbit is the amount of space that is located in the skull. This space is vital for holding all the parts of the eye, including the eyeball, the supplementary muscles, etc. The orbit contains four walls, which include the roof, the floor and the side two walls. Sometimes, air pressure builds inside the orbit and forces the eye to protrude out. This causes a lot of pain in the eye. For this reason, orbital decompression making use of the endoscopy method is needed.

I used to have headaches almost every alternate days and it took heavy toll on my health. I also had issues with my hearing (there was a moderate hearing loss noted) and I was really depressed with this.
I was suffering from sleep apnea and had tried the traditional method of CPAP without any meaningful improvement. It was also very inconvenient and embarassing to carry it around for business travel, holidays etc.
