Are ocular injection anesthetic blocks obsolete? Indications and guidelines

Published in Current Opinion in Ophthalmology. 2011, vol. 22, no. 1, p. 58-63
Abstract In this era of topical anesthesia for ocular surgery, anesthetic ocular blocks are still important when profound anesthesia and akinesia are required. Although injection ocular blocks, retrobulbar and peribulbar anesthesia, have been supplanted for most ocular surgery in many centers by sub-Tenon's irrigation block because of its superior safety profile, still worldwide, injection blocks remain popular.
