Orbital blow-out fractures: long-term visual outcome of associated ocular injuries

, : Orbital blow-out fractures: long-term visual outcome of associated ocular injuries. Journal of Accident & Emergency Medicine 12(4): 273-275

Severe ocular injuries are uncommon in patients with pure orbital blow-out fractures. Over a 3-year period, 45 patients with radiologically proved blow-out fractures were reviewed by an ophthalmologist. Decrease in visual acuity was the main clinical finding accompanying significant eye injury. Although most eye injuries were transient, early ophthalmic assessment is recommended to exclude potentially serious complications such as traumatic optic neuropathy. Troublesome diplopia may delay rapid rehabilitation.

The patients having orbital repair for a blow-out fracture, 6 months or longer after injury, had a high incidence of enophthalmos (72%).
