Treatments for Eye Socket Fracture in Children

Your child's treatment may include:

  • A consultation with an ophthalmologist, a physician who specializes in comprehensive eye care, may be necessary for a complete evaluation of your child's eye.
  • Some fractures don't have to be treated immediately. Depending on the injury, time may be allowed for the swelling and bruising to go away before the fracture is treated.
  • Double vision will usually resolve without treatment in three to four days.
  • Surgery may be required for severe fractures, or if there is involvement of the eye. Surgery may be performed immediately, or up to several days after the trauma.
