Is it possible for the eye to come all the way out of the socket even though the optic nerve and eye muscles are attached?

wouldnt the muscles have to stretch or tear before it could acutally "come out". when i say come out i mean lke come all the way out but be hanging by the muscles and optic nerve. i heard the optic nerve only had 10 mm of play.which is less than half an inch, so it would be impossible for the eye to come out more than 10 mm, unless one ripped the muscles and optic nerve, which would almost be impossible with out surgery.


what do you guys think? please help. btw this is part of my anxiety and ocd. so if someone could help it would be much appreciated:)

I Googled it. It looks pretty impossible. Apparently the six eye muscles holding your eyes in there are incredibly strong and connect to all sorts of spots on your eye, so there's no way it could come out completely unless you tear the muscles.

Try reading this, if it helps!
