Orbital Fractures


A trauma to the face can compromise the integrity of the orbital bones. 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, Dr. Zatezalo 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 of the orbit while maintaining appropriate lid position and sight.
