Ocular tenting in the setting of acute trauma, inflammatory processes, or carotid cavernous fistulas is reported to be associated with a poor outcome with respect to visual acuity. Therefore, acute decompressive intervention is recommended for these patients. We report a case of acute posttraumatic ocular tenting with acute visual compromise that resolved over 4 days with conservative management and intravenous corticosteroid therapy.

Retrospective Cohort Study of Frequency and Patterns of Orbital Injuries on Whole-Body CT with Maxillofacial Multi-Slice CT
Concomitant soft tissue injuries should be excluded explicitly in cases with orbital fractures to prevent loss of vision or ocular motility.
Gaze-evoked deformations of the optic nerve head in thyroid eye disease
Computational modelling and experimental observation suggest that TED can cause increased gaze-evoked deformations of the ONH, while the models with softer or no extraocular tissue had lesser deformations, in both adduction and abduction.


Globe tenting: a sign of increased orbital tension.
Progressive narrowing of the posterior globe angle correlated with an increase in proptosis and in optic nerve length, as well as with more severe visual impairment, in patients with globe tenting.
Diagnostic Imaging in Ophthalmology
This book discusses imaging techniques, congenital anomalies, radiation therapy and malignant intraoccular tumors, and the role of these imaging methods in the evaluation of ophthalmic disorders.
