Retinal Findings

Orbital disease may produce retinal and retinal vas-culature changes in the fundus.4 Venous engorgement and tortuousity may be seen in carotid cavernous fistulas or less commonly in compressive orbital disorders. Secondary retinal vein occlusion with in-traretinal hemorrhages and macular edema may be seen. Choroidal folds may result from orbital lesions compressing the globe. Fluorescein angiography might demonstrate the folds more dramatically (Figure 7.4).
