Description A 42-year-old man was seen for assessment of progressive blurring of vision in his left eye (OS) over several weeks. His examination showed a left optic neuropathy: visual acuity: 20/20 OD and 20/20-2 OS; pupils: 1+ left relative afferent pupillary defect; color vision: 14/14 plates correct OU. There was 2 mm proptosis of the left eye. The patient was ultimately diagnosed with a compressive optic neuropathy OS due to an intraorbital mass. The radiographic findings of his orbital mass were suggestive of an orbital cavernous hemangioma. Results from the patient's excisional biopsy confirmed the diagnosis.
