In brief: Antiobiotics, surger
Orbital cellulitis is a serious infection of the tissues around the eye socket.
It is treated with IV antibiotics and occasionally surgical drainage if an abscess forms.

In brief: See your doctor
Orbital cellulitis is due to an infection in the tissues adjacent to and behind the eye.
It can rapidly spread, locally, into the nose and into the brain. There is a high risk of vision loss. You should seek help immediately at an er or with your ophthalmologist (not an optometrist). Do not delay.
