UCSD's Catalog of Clinical Images
Extraoccular Muscle Entrapment: This patient fell, sustaining orbital
floor fracture of left eye.
The inferior rectus muscle has become stuck in the fracture, preventing the patient from being able
to look directly downward. This is evident in the picture on the right. The diffuse scleral redness is
due to traumatic subconjunctival hemorrhage.
