Anesthesia for ophthalmic surgery can be associated with a variety of potential complications. Their incidences are low, but for the individual patient the consequences of a major complication can be devastating. Some complications require further surgical management, such as muscle surgery for postoperative strabismus or vitrectomy and/or retinal detachment repair following globe perforation. To reduce the incidence of complications, practitioners must learn the safest techniques of ophthalmic anesthesia and diligently apply them in every patient.
