A prospective clinical trial using sub-conjunctival
(Sub- Tenon's) anaesthesia for trabeculectomy is
reported. Forty-one eyes of 22 consecutive patients
with glaucoma had trabeculectomy performed using
the sub-conjunctival method of local anaesthesia.
The effectiveness of the anaesthetic, intra-operative
and post- operative complications were recorded.
Sub-conjunctival injection of local anaesthesia
was found to be painless and free from the
complications associated with retrobulbar injections.
Surgery was also found to be easier as a conjunctival
bleb was already raised allowing easy access to the
sub-conjunctival space. Voluntary eye movements
remained but did not interfere with surgery.
