What is Enophthalmos?

Description of the disease

Enophthalmos is a condition in which the eyeball recedes into the orbit, making the eye appear sunken and retracted. This can be caused by various reasons such as trauma, tumor, or eye infections.


  • Static enophthalmos
  • Dynamic enophthalmos


  • Deeply sunken eye
  • Narrowed eyelid
  • Resembling a retracted eye


Enophthalmos can be caused by various reasons, including trauma, tumor, infection, or congenital anomalies.


Methods used for diagnosing enophthalmos include fundus examination, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging.


Treatment of enophthalmos depends on the underlying cause and may involve surgical intervention, the use of an eye prosthesis, or treatment of the underlying condition such as a tumor.


Prevention of enophthalmos includes preventing trauma, timely treatment of infections, and regular check-ups with an ophthalmologist.


Enophthalmos diagnosis and treatment are conducted by an ophthalmologist.
