Extension of orofacial infection to the orbit can result in significant morbidity and mortality. The diagnosis and treatment of infection in or about the face are of major concern to dentist. Dentist who treats conditions in the adjacent areas must understand the structure and function of orbital contents in order to recognize the early signs of potential serious ophthalmic infection. Involvement of orbit may itself indicate a more serious process occurring in adjacent tissue. Therefore understanding of behaviour and potential dangers from spreading infection in the region of head and neck should be accurately understood to treat the patient with complete confidence. Keeping these things in mind, a review of ophthalmic considerations in dentistry is discussed.
