Exophthalmos

Abstract
Exophthalmos (also known as proptosis) is the protrusion of one eye or both anteriorly out of the orbit. It derives from Greek, meaning 'bulging eyes.'[1] It occurs due to an increase in orbital contents in the regular anatomy of the bony orbit.[2] Depending on the underlying cause, exophthalmos may be accompanied by systemic symptoms. Vision may be disturbed if the optic nerve is compressed in conjunction with the underlying etiology of exophthalmos.
