What is an orbital fracture?
An orbital fracture refers to a break or fracture in the bones surrounding the eye socket, known as the orbit. Orbital fractures commonly occur as a result of traumatic incidents, such as car accidents, falls, or sports injuries, where a significant force is applied to the face. These fractures can vary in severity, ranging from small cracks in the bone to complete breaks that cause the bones to become displaced. To find out how Dr. Warner can help you, we welcome you to request a consultation at our practice in Lake Mary, Florida.
What are the signs and symptoms of orbital fractures?
Symptoms of orbital fractures may include swelling, bruising, pain, double vision, difficulty moving the eye, or sunken appearance of the eye. Prompt medical attention is necessary to diagnose and treat orbital fractures, as they can lead to complications such as vision problems or infections if left untreated.
How can Florida Eyelid and Cosmetic Surgery help?
Some orbital fractures do not require repair and can spontaneously heal with no complications. Others require repair using advanced orbital surgery with implants and plating systems to stabilize the fracture allowing it to heal.
