Orbital compartment syndrome (OCS) is a rare but potentially devastating ophthalmic emergency caused by a rise in intraorbital pressure (IOP) requiring emergent orbital decompression to preserve vision.[28] Typically, an IOP >20 mmHg is considered elevated, and an increased IOP may compress the optic nerve directly or cause compression of its vasculature.[29]
