Facial Trauma

The orbit is comprised of four boney walls designed to the protect the eye from trauma. Trauma may include laceration or damage to the skin and soft tissues of the face and eyelids, or fractures of the facial or orbital bones. Orbital trauma is commonly seen with facial trauma. Management of midfacial trauma requires in-depth knowledge of the orbital anatomy. Dr. Michael Connor repairs most orbital fractures through an incision hidden behind the lower eyelid.

Another common referral to our practice is complications following repair of traumatic orbital and facial fractures. Scarring, double vision, asymmetry, sinking in, or bulging of the eye can occur following repair, and these symptoms can often be fixed. Evaluation by an orbital specialist will provide you the best opportunity for a great outcome.
