For older microphthalmic children, craniofacial techniques have been used to reposition and resize the orbit. Such repairs are complex, as noted in the following discussion of craniofacial clefting. Microphthalmia with orbital cyst results from the failure of the choroidal fissure to close in the embryo. This condition is usually unilateral but may be bilateral. The presence of an orbital cyst may be beneficial for stimulating normal growth of the involved orbital bone and eyelids. In some cases, the orbital cyst may have to be removed to allow for fitting of an ocular prosthesis.

The long ciliary nerves pass by the ciliary ganglion and enter the sclera, where they extend anteriorly to supply the iris, cornea, and ciliary muscle. The muscles of facial expression, including the orbicularis oculi, procerus, corrugator superciliaris, and frontalis muscles, receive their motor supply by way of branches of CN VII (the facial nerve) that penetrate the undersurface of each muscle. The parasympathetic innervation, which controls accommodation, pupillary con striction, and lacrimal gland stimulation, follows a complicated course.
