Optic nerve sheath decompression is an increasingly useful surgical technique for relief of visual loss due to pseudotumor cerebri and to a number of optic disc pathologic conditions. Eight patients (10 eyes) with progressive visual loss were treated by perioptic meningectomy using a lateral orbitotomy approach with good results. We report our experience illustrating briefly the indications and result and mainly the surgical technique.
