Abstract: A modified technique of peribulbar anaesthesia consisting of a single injection of anaesthetic solution with a 26G, half inch insulin needle was evaluated in 50 eyes. The operative procedures included extracapsular cataract extraction with intraocular lens implantation in 20 eyes, intracapsular lens extraction in 20 eyes, and trabeculectomy in 10 eyes. Complete anaesthesia was obtained in 45 eyes (90%). No significant complications were observed except for mild to moderate conjunctival chemosis in 40 eyes (80%). The technique is easy to learn, safe, effective and relatively economical.
