The thin bones that surround the eye are called the orbital socket, providing vital for protection and stabilization of the eyes. When the face is impacted, these thin bones are the most likely areas to fracture due to their delicate nature. Although many orbital fractures can heal without the need for surgery, some may require intervention to restore the bone and structure. Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, is a top facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in NYC who can repair orbital fractures to protect the eye and the appearance of the face.

Eye socket fractures most commonly occur on the “floor” of the socket, the most vulnerable area. A direct impact to the face when playing sports, during a fight or in an auto accident can fracture the bone. While there is usually intense pain when the impact occurs, many orbital fractures quickly recover and may not have much pain at all. There may be swelling and bruising, but if the fracture has not compromised the integrity of the eye socket, it can heal on its own. However, the fracture should always be examined to ensure there is not any internal damage to the eye. If repair is needed to the bone, a facial reconstructive surgeon is the best choice for ensuring form and function is retained.

When Is Eye Socket Repair Needed?

Due to the proximity to the eye, orbital sockets should only be repaired if necessary. If the fracture is not affecting vision or the facial appearance, it is often recommended to allow it to heal. However, in some cases, tissue from inside the eye socket can be trapped in the fracture, causing vision and other issues. If the eye socket structure is damaged, the eyes may sink and the appearance of the face can change. Orbital fracture repair or surgery can protect the eye tissues and the facial appearance, which is available through Dr. Rosenberg’s offices in NYC and Upper East Side.

If you have sustained an eye socket fracture and are experiencing vision or aesthetic changes, contact Dr. Rosenberg to discuss orbital fracture repair.

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
