We describe a technique to correct enophthalmos that involves measurement of the volume of the injured orbit followed by an accurate replacement of this volume with an autogenous bone graft. Twelve consecutive patients were treated with this technique and all but one showed an improvement in enophthalmos. Four of the seven with diplopia improved after the operation.
