Abstract

Visual loss following orbital surgery, though rare, is a devastating complication. Ophthalmic artery occlusion as a cause is even more rare and grave as the vision loss is irreversible. We report one such case following lateral orbitotomy for an orbital schwannoma in a young man who denied light perception post operatively and was diagnosed to have an ophthalmic artery occlusion.

Keywords: Schwannoma, Orbitotomy, Vision loss, Ophthalmic artery occlusion
