Mid face fracture leads to injuries involving orbits, Medial wall followed by orbital floor being the most commonly affected. We cover here orbital floor fractures resulting into defects. This article is an attempt to put forward the idea of why molding the iliac autogenous bone graft should be done to fit the curvature of the orbital floor. By changing the degree of curvature of the harvested graft, it fits snugly into the defect rather than being tented from behind or not sitting well in the defect leading to altered orbital volume. Molding the graft helps re-establish the continuity of the floor while maintaining adequate orbital volume.
