1Indication

Observation may be indicated in slightly or non-dislocated orbital wall fractures without disturbance of eye mobility, or in cases where patient condition does not allow surgical intervention.
The decision to observe or to perform surgery is based on thorough evaluation; correction of a potential secondary deformity is challenging.
Observation may also be considered in a significant orbital fracture of the only seeing eye.
