Abstract

We assessed the safety and effectiveness of sub-Tenon's anesthesia, a local anesthesia, for strabismus surgery. For 15 surgeries, we used anesthesia by sub-Tenon's infusion, followed by direct infusion through a transconjunctival route with a local anesthetic agent. We found the procedure was simple, it minimized complications compared with other techniques and was effective in achieving rapid anesthesia. With the ocular movement remaining, we checked eye position by the alternative cover-uncover test at the end of surgery. We obtained good eye position for all patients. This method leads to good results for strabismus surgery.
