CT orbits demonstrating irregularity to left optic nerve and adjacent fat stranding. Unenhanced CT orbit study demonstrates shaggy irregularity of the distal left optic nerve, which is enlarged compared to the right. Surrounding mild fat stranding is also evident. Minor preseptal soft tissue swelling is apparent with tracking of a thin hematoma along the lateral left orbital wall. The globes are intact, and no additional traumatic injury is visualized.
