Abstract

Orbital varix is rarely described as a complication of exercise. We present a rare case of a fit and healthy 43‐year‐old female who presented with acute‐onset vertical binocular diplopia while executing a yoga manoeuvre described as the “Downward Facing Dog.” Associated with her presentation was a persistent unilateral variable Valsalva‐induced proptosis. The aim of this paper is to document a unique case of orbital varix presenting with sudden‐onset diplopia post exercise and to highlight the need to consider as a differential when presented with a similar case.
