A patient presented to the ER with redness of the right eye for months. Initial exam revealed VA 20/50 and was noted to have right sided ptosis and ophthalmoplegia. MRI of the orbits was performed which showed an ill-defined right orbital mass. The patient underwent right orbitotomy for biopsy that showed carcinoma consistent with metastasis and breast primary. The patient subsequently underwent radiotherapy and hormone therapy with improvement on follow up of her symptoms. We will discuss the presentation of orbital metastasis and evaluate the course and prognosis.
