[Several considerations on how to achieve perfect ophthalmic anesthesia].

X L Gan Guyan Wang

Zhonghua Yi Xue Za Zhi 2022 Jun;102(21):1564-1567

Department of Anesthesiology, Beijing Tongren Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing 100730, China.

The reality that most of ophthalmic surgeries are conducted under retrobulbar block or topic anesthesia performed by the ophthalmic surgeons themselves may affect the balance between quality and efficiency of ophthalmic anesthesia. The authors suggest that the key principle to perform ophthalmic anesthesia is to help the patients be well prepared preoperatively. In order to achieve this goal, we should make full use of the supraglottic airway device and awake sedation, improve ultrasound-guided regional block technique, strengthen cooperation with ophthalmic surgeons, thereby meeting the comfortable anesthesia requirements of ophthalmic surgery patients and adapting for the development trend of day surgery.
