Orbital compartment syndrome (OCS) is one of a few true ophthalmologic emergencies. It develops due to acute intra-orbital pressure rising and if not immediately treated, the irreversible visual loss is unavoidable due to the damage to optic disc and retina. Thus, the immediate diagnosis and management are vital for vision. In this review, we aimed to summarize the OCS and to call attention to it.

Keywords: Orbital compartment, ocular compression, canthotomy, cantholysis, true emergency.
