Disorders of the orbit can secondarily involve the eye. Although nonspecific, changes which can be noted on funduscopic examination including abnormalities of the retina, choroid, and optic nerve, can be secondary to an underlying orbital process. Awareness of these findings and their association with orbital disease is of great importance to the practicing ophthalmologist, since many orbital disorders are treatable and indeed, some are life-threatening. In addition, treatment of these disorders can potentially result in a variety of ocular complications. An understanding of the potential risks is of the utmost importance in planning treatment of an orbital disease.
