Eye Socket Fracture Recovery Time
A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more

My Eye socket is fractured. My sight is fine but after two weeks it is still bruised and the eye looks sunken in. Do I need surgery?
See oculoplastic Dr.: The contraction of soft tissue, possible fibrosis/scarring may be occurring from the fracture as swelling goes down. You should see your eye doctor to be seen by an oculoplastic surgeon for evaluation & fracture repair. You will be tested for range of motion, exophthalmometer to see how sunken your eye is & whether there's muscle entrapment present. Your repair needs to happen now. Don't delay!
I have a fractured eye socket bone and feel a weird detach piece on the corner of my eye where the fracture is that wasn't there before the fracture?
See an eye doc and a: Faciomaxillary surgeon, as the socket fx may need to be fixed to stabilize the eye globe.
Not necessarily...: If it is just a simple fracture and your eye is functioning normally, no surgery is needed. It will heal. If the fracture is severe i.e. Pushing your eyeball out/in and not moving eye well, or severe deformity etc...Then you need surgery etc...Otherwise, just observation and time...Maybe something for pain such as motrin/tylenol etc...Consult your doc... Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
"minor"=self-healing: Obviously, the important word here is "minor." whoever told you the fractures were "minor" would be the best person to answer this question, as they have seen the x-rays, examined your son, etc. If the fractures are minor, they will heal without surgery with very little risk of long-term effects. These fractures are usually non-displaced, meaning that the bone is cracked but still in place.
Of course: Any martial arts technique executed a certain way has the potential to result in serious bodily injury, including bone fractures. Be careful and train smart.
When I was five I fractured my eye socket today during karate I slipped and hit my eye it is swollen and I can't see out of it?
EYE EMERGENCY: You must go to the emergency room IMMEDIATELY. Loss of sight in your eye is an emergency and must be evaluated by an eye doctor as soon as possible. Go now. If you can't see out of it because your eyelid is swollen shut, then the eye itself might be ok. But if your eyelid is open and you can't see then you need to seek attention right NOW.
Childrens hospital specialist will check eye socket fracture; will it be a plastic surgeon or eye doctor?
Both?: Plastic surgeons have expertise in evaluating and repairing fractures of the facial bones, including the eye socket. Ophthalmologists (eye doctors) may evaluate the eyeball of an injured child with an eye socket fracture if there is any question about injury to the eyeball, itself, which can happen at the same time. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
Probably: Subcutaneous emphysema is a sign of a fracture of the orbit into one of the sinuses. A history of trauma to the bones of the orbit proceeding the symptom is consistent with this. If this occurs without trauma some type of bone erosion is occurring possibly neoplastic. An exam and possible surgical repair are indicated.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Usually, yes. But it depends where the orbit is fractured.See 2 more doctor answers

Orbital Fracture: Greetings. By definition an orbital fracture with entrapment becomes a surgical consideration in the right patient. First you would need to have double vision with upward gaze. Also your eye movements would need to be limited because of the fracture limiting muscle movement. A CT image is usually needed prior to surgery. Finally seeing an experienced board certified surgeon is recommended. GLSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it broken or fractured is a question I am often asked. The answer is basically that a broken or fractured bone is the same thing. A fracture means a break in the cortex or the strong layer of outer bone cells. In an adult the average time for that to heal varies greatly but is often considered to ...Read more
