Before surgery


After surgery*

Trauma involving the eyelids and orbits can range from minor to life-threatening.  Assessing and repairing the eyelids and orbits is the job of the oculoplastic surgeon.  A detailed knowledge of the periocular anatomy is the key to successful reconstructive surgery.  Often, trivial-appearing eyelid injuries mask deeper orbital injuries that may occur with penetrating trauma such as stab wounds and bullet injuries.

A team approach is often used for the assessment and management of periocular injuries.  The preservation of vision and the eyeball requires a detailed ophthalmic assessment.  Injuries to the orbit often require a CT scan to rule out broken bones and retained foreign material.
