Why do I need treatment?

October 30, 2019

You have broken your cheekbone (Zygoma) and/or eye socket (Orbit). Your cheekbone is part of your eye socket. It protects your eyeball and supports it from below. It is also linked to the side of your nose and your upper jaw.

If your nose bleeds, simply wipe the blood away with a tissue. Do not blow your nose as this can cause swelling and an infection in and around your eye.

Could you be covered?
