Orbital compartment syndrome (OCS) is a true ophthalmological emergency. It develops as a result of an acute rise in intra-orbital pressure, and if not treated immediately, damage to the optic disc and retina will lead to irreversible vision loss. Thus, immediate diagnosis and management are vital to preserve vision. Presented here is a brief summary of OCS in order to call attention to this condition.

Keywords: Cantholysis, canthotomy, ocular compression, orbital compartment, true emergency.
