Abstract :

Orbital and globe surgeries are considered to cause moderate to severe pain. Regional anesthesia techniques provide complete sensory blockade and therefore provide excellent analgesia for painful procedures. The purpose of this review is to present new regional anesthesia techniques for eye surgery that were reported in the recent veterinary literature. Methods that will be discussed include: retrobulbar anesthesia, peribulbar anesthesia, sub-Tennon├ó┬?┬?s anesthesia, and infiltration techniques. Regional anesthesia techniques were reported to be effective during eye surgeries, and are recommended for use as part of pain management in small animals.
