One hundred and five patients were investigated for functional and aesthetic impairments following treatment of orbital trauma through subciliary, mid-lower eyelid, or infraorbital incisions. The progress of impairments with time was assessed, and the merits and shortcomings of each of the three approaches were established. The results showed that impairments persisting up to 6 months postoperatively have virtually not receded even after 6 years. The infraorbital incision showed the highest frequency of impairments, followed by the subciliary incision. The mid-lower eyelid incision showed the best results, with an impairment frequency well below those of the other two approaches. This approach seems to combine the advantages of the infraorbital incision with the unnoticeable scar formation associated with the subciliary incision.
