    Cellulitis is an urgent and potentially vision-threatening problem. The distinction between preseptal and orbital cellulitis is important. Preseptal cellulitis implies involvement of only anterior lid structures and periorbital tissues. The eye is normal. Examination will reveal lid swelling and erythema, but visual acuity, motility, and ocular structures will be normal.
