Orbital fractures

The orbital fractures can involve the roof, floor, lateral or medial walls of the orbit. An orbital fracture usually occurs after some type of injury or secondary to some blunt trauma to the face.

Depending on the severity of the trauma, it can involve other facial bones as well.

Orbital fractures can be associated with severe eye injury or damage, so a full ophthalmic exam should be undertaken.

Symptoms of orbital fracture can include swelling of the eyelids, pain in the eye, double vision, bruising around the eye, sunken eye, numbness of upper teeth and decreased movement of the affected eye.
