Some orbital wall fractures heal on their own, while others require surgery. Your doctor will discuss which treatment is right for you.
Two types of surgery are used for orbital wall fractures:
- Traditional surgery, which requires an open incision
- Minimally invasive (endoscopic) surgery, which typically does not require an incision
The right type of surgery depends on the location of the fracture, how bad the break is and how long it’s been since the fracture occurred.
