Lateral canthotomy is a simple procedure used to decompress a compartment syndrome of the orbit. It is most often used in cases of blunt trauma, when bleeding into the retrobulbar space causes an increase in pressure resulting in ischemia to the retina and optic nerve. LCC can be easily performed by the emergency physician, and has the potential to save the patient?s vision.
