What is the best treatment to repair the broken eye socket after a traumatic eye injury?
Endoscopy surgery is the best treatment
I understand your concern. From what you refer, it seems the eye socket is broken and the eye is being pushed back, a condition known as enophtalmos and this condition requires surgery. The return of the vision is a sign that the eye has not been damaged however the broken socket may affect the eye positioning. The best treatment plan is to wait for the swelling to go down and then go for surgery. The endoscopic approach for the repair is the best treatment and it involves inserting instruments and surgical cameras through the mouth or nose.
I hope this answers your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Is this surgical procedure complicated? Do I need to go someplace other than XXXXXXX WV?
As every surgery, this one also carries a certain degree of risk. Infection is the main concern. Also, there is the risk of double vision after the surgery, which may require another surgery to repair the eye muscles.
However, it is considered a generally safe procedure with good outcomes.
As for your second question, I regret that I am not able to answer it as I do not know about that region.
I hope this answers your question and I hope you have a successful recovery.
