• Rapid progression to blindness due to intraorbital hemorrhage following various forms of trauma requires immediate, aggressive intervention, with the potential to restore vision. Orbital decompression via either an external ethmoidectomy or transantral approach is described. The diagnosis, anatomy, and pathogenetic mechanisms relevant to these cases are reviewed.
