Abstract

Orbital injury is common and the diagnosis can be challenging for the oral and maxillofacial surgeon called to perform an emergency room assessment. The approach to the patient with orbital trauma is complicated by a wide range of potential ocular and brain injuries with varying pathophysiology. The impact causing orbital injuries are often much greater than those that cause purely ocular injury, hence adjacent non ocular structures like nose, paranasal sinuses, midface and jaw, and brain are also commonly injured. Because of this, extensive orbital trauma is best managed by a multidisciplinary team, on which neurosurgery and ophthalmology must be represented.
