Orbital Fracture Repair

Orbital Fracture Repair

The exact treatment for an orbital fracture depends on the type and severity of the injury. For small fractures, a Temple ophthalmologist may simply recommend antibiotics and an icepack, Tylenol, or pain medication.

For more severe fractures, especially those which limit the eye's ability to move, a Temple oculoplastic surgeon performs the delicate surgery needed to repair the orbital bone.

Depending on the exact nature of a severe fracture, surgery may be needed to:

  • Remove bone fragments from the eyeball
  • Restore the shape of the eyeball
  • Disentangle ocular muscles
  • Relieve double vision
  • Repair cosmetic blemishes on the eye socket

Temple's oculoplastics surgeons are highly experienced in treating a wide range of orbital fractures.
