Abstract

The orbital bones are thin and exposed, making the orbital walls vulnerable to fractures. The floor of the orbit is the weakest portion of this 4-sided pyramid structure. Blunt force trauma is the primary mechanism of injury in young men between the ages of 18 and 30 years. Computerized tomography is the primary imaging technique to diagnose orbital fractures. Conservative versus surgical management is determined by maxillofacial and ophthalmology specialists.
