Orbital Fractures

A trauma to the face can compromise the integrity of the orbital bones resulting in an orbital fracture or fractured eye socket. When the orbital bones are fractured, the eye may be unable to move, the muscles of the eye may no longer function, and the eye may sink back into the orbit. Depending on the location, size and severity of the fracture – orbital rim fracture, orbital blowout fracture or orbital floor fracture – your oculoplastic surgeon may treat you medically or offer you a surgical solution.

There are various methods used to repair orbital fractures depending on the location, size, and severity. After the orbital tissue is repositioned into an appropriate location, an implant is usually used to support the orbital tissue and prevent repeated displacement. The goal of all fracture repairs is to restore function to the orbit while maintaining appropriate lid position and sight.
