More Information About Ortibal Trauma
This person has enophthalmos of the left eye (your right). This means the left eye is sinking inward. You can see on the CT that there is a fracture of the left medial wall of the orbit so that the ethmoid sinuses have been obliterated by orbital fat. The volume expansion of the orbital space into the ethmoid sinus can sometimes cause enophthalmos. When there are two or more millimeters of enophthalmos present it is usually noticeable to a casual observer.
This illustration demonstrates the approach to the orbital floor. An incision is made behind the eyelid and underneath the eye.
The fracture of the orbital floor is exposed for repair.
An implant is placed. In this illustration the implant is shown to be a supramid sheet. Sometimes a titanium implant or other material is essential for repair.

My experience with Dr. Brock and his staff could not have been better…it was also my first time in my 59 years a Doctor came to the waiting room and introduced himself to my husband and me. A class act all the way!
