To the Editor We read the article titled “Self-induced Orbital Compression Injury: Saturday Night Retinopathy” by Williams et al1 with great interest. The authors describe a case of orbital compression and ophthalmic ischemia secondary to prolonged prone positioning following heavy drinking and drug use. The authors report that their case is the second published in the literature after the original one described by Jayam et al2 in 1974.
