Luxation of the eyeball is a rare clinical entity that may present spontaneously or more commonly following trauma, but it carries a risk of threat to permanent vision loss. Appropriate intervention should be undertaken instantly. Prompt reduction results in restoration of full anatomical, functional, and visual recovery in otherwise healthy eyes.
