The present study reveals that road traffic accidents, especially motor cycle crashes and interpersonal violence are the leading causes of orbital injuries seen most commonly in the young males between the age group of 20 to 40 years. Periorbital oedema and subconjunctival hemorrhage constitute the most common eyeball injury seen in orbital fractures. In the study, lateral wall and floor were commonly associated in orbital fractures. The high incidence of lateral wall fractures in the present study is due to the fact that our hospital is situated near a motor highway and 78 % of patients were involved in road traffic accidents.
