The bones (“socket”) around the eye are among the thinnest in the body. These bones are also prone to fracture. However, care must be taken as the health of the eye must be taken into consideration. During repair, the surgeon must always keep the eye itself in mind. In most cases, the incision to repair a broken orbital bone may be hidden inside the lower eyelid. Surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and patients are asked to avoid strenuous activity for one week after surgery.
