Two patients developed traumatic orbital haemorrhage resulting in prolonged blindness. Orbital decompression successfully reversed the visual loss, though both eyes had no light perception for at least 3 1/2 hours. The clinical findings suggest damage to the posterior optic nerve as cause of the visual loss. The optic nerve tolerance time to ischaemic injury may be longer than previously thought.
