I already had 2 eye orbit surgeries. What is needed to repair my eye socket orbit properly so my eyes sit level? (Photos)

Late orbital fracture surgery
I need more information including examination and CT scan of your orbits to tell you what can or should be done. It is likely that the orbital floor isn't "fixed" yet. See following link.

Thanks for your question in your photos. The result seems pretty good based on what you described. It however seems that you are pretty swollen especially to your upper eyelid. It is really hard to say what is needed without appropriate imaging like a CAT scan perhaps maybe a lot of cephalogram. The best assessment will come from a in person consultation to properly examine you and feel if there're any bone abnormalities that can be corrected. Be patient and seek several consultations from eye specialists such as Plastic surgeons, facial plastics and oculoplastic surgeons. Good luck.
All the best,

You need a detailed personal consultation.
Your photos suggest that your surgeons must have gotten you pretty close. I can not appreciate precisely how the left eye sits from the photos. Generally there can be room to improve a result. What has to be answered is if the additional surgery is likely to make an improvement that will be significant enough to make the benefits outweigh the risks. You will need a new CT scan if it was not already performed after your last orbit surgery.
