ER, or EyeMD: This is an urgent problem that needs quick attention. Go to the er if you do not have an eyemd who can see you soon. You did not say how old the patient is but for babies, a pediatrician would be a good place to start also.

Oculoplastic surgeon: An oculoplastic surgeon treats diseases of the orbit and would diagnose and treat an orbital cellulitis, including orbital abscess drainage when necessary. He may refer you to an ENT at some point if he believes the sinuses are involved in the infection.
