Intraocular tumor and sinusitis can also cause swelling in the eye. Supportive treatment is given. Antibiotic ointment is used. The parrot is relieved by evacuating the abscess outside the eye and disconnected from it, with a syringe. The causative agent is determined by the examinations to be made from the contents of the abscess and treated for it. If it is due to sinusitis, nasal congestion is cleared by washing. In abscesses caused by lacrimal duct obstruction, the duct is tried to be opened by applying pressure. If there is tumor formation, surgical treatment is applied.
