Abstract

Orbital injuries are common and a common cause of blindness. The first priority for these injuries is the health of the globe. Imaging is imperative for diagnosing orbital fractures, as clinical examination cannot thoroughly assess their presence or severity. When treatment is indicated, an anatomic reconstruction of the internal orbit is critical to the proper position and function of the ocular globe.
