Fractured eye socket

A fracture to the eye socket does not always require intervention to heal, your surgeon will advise you upon the best treatment having examined and reviewed your scans.

If surgery is required it will take place in a hospital, typically a small incision is made just below the lower eye lid, and through this the surgeon repositions the fractured bone.

Often the bone is shattered and there is nothing left to support the eyeball, if so the surgeon will graft material to the site to recreate the support. In the event this is required it will be known prior to surgery and the type of graft used will be discussed.
