When the eye and surrounding tissues are injured, urgent assessment is needed to determine the threat to sight and reduce the risk of visual loss. Ocular injuries are relatively common and may be caused by blunt, sharp, chemical or thermal insults. They may cause sore, red and watery eyes, swelling, scarring, lid malposition and facial asymmetry. Blunt injuries from a punch or a fall for example may cause a fracture of the bony floor and inner wall of the eye socket (orbit). Not all fractures need to be repaired however surgical repair may be advised when there is persistent double vision or a sunken appearance of the eye socket.
