Three cases of spontaneous orbital hemorrhages in 3 adult females are reported. All of the patients had acute radiating pain in the orbit, vomiting and proptosis with a limitation of motility and ecchymosis of the eyelids. One was due to a large orbital varix with a preceding history of intermittent exophthalmos; the causes of the other cases could not be determined from their backgrounds. Within a few weeks, all of them had recovered from hematoma and had good prognoses without surgery. Orbital venous bleeding with 40 mm Hg pressure will cause more than 500 g tension on the four rectus muscles. To treat this clinical emergency, hemostasis with compression in the early phase and waiting for its spontaneous absorption are recommended.
