Trauma, head, face: Traumatic facial injuries and to the skull are occasioned by severe level of impact. Besides the obvious deformities, the not so obvious brain concussion can be difficult to assess. Neuroradiologic evaluation early and in follow up can look for physical problems, but assessment of more intangible problems is the speciality of neurologist and rehabilitation medicine.

Craniofacial Injury: How a child is affected by a craniofacial injury depends on many factors, including but not limited to: age, type and extent of the injury. I suppose that the inquirer refers to eye health alone, where is what i can give an opinion. The question as posted is too broad to give meaningful answers.
Dr. William Singer

Depends on injury: the effect is dependent on the type of injury and location. Vision problems including double vision, misalignment of the eyes, sinus problems and breathing difficulty with nasal injuries and deformity of the nose. headaches, and potentially hearing problmes.
