Orbital Tumor

I had an incidental finding of a sizeable orbital haemangioma tumor behind my left eye. My eye sight n inspection are normal so far but both CT and MRI scans turned out visible conclusion of a 1.6cmx2.1cmx1.7cm  intraconal mass lesion.  Local ophthalmologist analysed the scans and explained the irregular shape of the tumor while not damaging the optical nerve appears to straddle the optical nerve and thus presented risky challenges locally to remove the tumor safely without risking touching/damaging optical nerve.  Can anyone recommend any top notch specialist who can give me advice whether I should treat this surgically with enhanced chance of success, or should I just stay put to observe until such time I have no choice as my eye sight starts to deteriorate and thus the cost of failure would be relatively less ?

This is very specialized area.  You should Google Orbital surgeon.
