Surgery - Plastics
2 doctors agree
In brief: 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.

In brief: Maybe both
Maxillofacial surgeons, plastic surgeons and head and neck surgeons (otolaryngologists and ent) all treat facial fractures.
An ophthalmologist (eye doctor) may be involved in care especially if the globe or eyeball is injured.
