Approximately 500,000 serious eye injuries occur each year; 25,000 lead to total blindness - especially in young adults. Many sorts of trauma including car accidents, fights, sports injuries, fireworks etc may damage the eyelids, tissue around the eyes, and the bones of the orbit.
Quick attention to the injury as well as possible need for plastic and reconstructive surgery are important to restore the proper function as well as cosmetic appearance.
If the eye is damaged to the extent that it must be removed, an artificial eye may inserted. There is no way to restore vision to the eye in this instance.
