When you were injured you likely suffered a fracture to one of the orbital bones -most likely the floor of the orbit. This caused there to be more room in the eye socket or orbit and you now have a sunken in eye. This is what happens sometimes with untreated orbital fractures. You need to see an ophthalmologist who may have to refer you to an orbital surgeon to see if surgery might be able to help. This really should have been treated soon after the injury.
could it be a tear or something,letting fat get too far forward and holding the eye back,because i notice more fat under my left eye...i never felt much pain if any,no bruising or swelling or discomfort?i hope it doesnt require surgery so im trying to figure out everything that could be happening
