Unfortunately, injuries to the eyes and eye socket are common place.  Common injuries include eyelid laceration, tear drain injuries, bleeding within and bruising around the eye, and fractures of the bones of the eye socket. Trauma often occurs from sporting activities like baseball, soccer or football or from car accidents and fist fights. Trauma to the orbit and eye area can vary from simple bruising to  fractures of the orbital bone and sinus. Fractures may cause double vision and sinus fractures should be repaired in a timely fashion. Even delayed repairs, while more difficult, can still be done.

Severe trauma may irreparably injure the eye. Along with diseased eyes that are blind, painful and disfiguring, the removal of an eye (enucleation) is indicated when the eye cannot be salvaged. Reconstruction of the eye socket to prepare it for a prosthetic eye typically leads to a very pleasing result in addition to the benefits of removing the blinded eye or diseased, painful eye. Finally, eye socket that have already had the eye removed may also experience problems and need regular examinations and further reconstruction.
