    The bones of the orbit hold the globe and periocular structures and protect it and other periocular contents. This has been shown in blowout orbital fractures, as well as in high-energy injuries to the periorbital region. However, there is little information regarding how the orbital bones protect the globe after periorbital trauma from sharp objects. This study reports 4 cases of traumatic injury from sharp objects to the periorbital area and eyelids to demonstrate the protective features of the orbital bones. The anatomy of the periorbital bones clearly protected the globe from direct trauma in all the 4 cases. There was no harm to the orbit or visual impairment after the successful treatment with definitive surgery. Copyright © 2022 by Mutaz B. Habal, MD.
