  82. 82. Traumatic Optic Neuropathy : Classification and Mechanisms Direct injury - Penetrating injury from knife, projectile - Injury from fractured bone - Avulsion, transection Indirect injury - Contusion with transmission of force through bone - Compression secondary to orbital hemorrhage or intrasheath hemorrhage
  83. 83. Clinical Features of Traumatic Optic Neuropathy Most commonly unilateral May be overlooked in setting of significant globe or maxillofacial trauma Reduced visual acuity ( NLP to 20/20 ) Visual field defect : No pathognomonic defect Normal optic disc with development of optic atrophy
  84. 84. Medical Management Options Steroids : Controversial - Thought to limit free-radical amplification of the injury response - Dosages ( low, high, mega) - May be harmful Observation : 57% of untreated patients shown to have 3 lines or more acuity improvement
  85. 85. Surgical Management Options Lateral canthotomy and cantholysis for orbital hemorrhage Surgical decompression of the optic nerve within its canal There is no defined standard protocol of treatment for indirect optic nerve injury .
