Eye socket fracture
Treatment & Care
Your child's treatment may include:
- A consultation with an ophthalmologist, a physician who specializes in comprehensive eye care, may be necessary for a complete evaluation of your child's eye.
- Some fractures don’t have to be treated immediately. Depending on the injury, time may be allowed for the swelling and bruising to go away before the fracture is treated.
- Double vision will usually resolve without treatment in three to four days.
- Surgery may be required for severe fractures, or if there is involvement of the eye. Surgery may be performed immediately, or up to several days after the trauma.
