Still have swelling under right eye but I'm starting to detect that my right eye seems a little sunken in. What should I do about this???
Had Surgery 9/10/12 for Orbital Floor Fracture. Still Have Swelling and Sunken?

The sunken in appearance is a complication of your fracture, sometimes aggravated by the surgical repair. Reevaluation for further surgery should usually be delayed until the current trauma has healed. See a good Oculoplastic specialist. Be aware that further surgery in this area can also lead to double vision, so have a strabismus/pediatric ophthalmologist evaluate you preoperatively as well. Good luck!
