    Hi Anyone who might know,

    There seem to be different types of ocular anaesthesia.
    Are different anaesthesia procedures used for different ocular problems?
    What is a retrobulbar anaesthesia?
    Is this form of anaesthesia still used?
    Where is the retrobulbar 'space' ?

    Simple discussion/explanation please ;o)

    I had a procedure for an eye infection that resulted in a branch arterial
    occlusion and permanent loss of central vision in that eye. Explanation is
    not entirely satisfactory. It has been suggested that this was precipitated
    by an adrenaline 'rush' and the epinephrine in the anaesthesia. I remain
    extremely cautious and interested in ocular anaesthesia and associated
    procedures.

    Thanks.
    Diana
