Between April 1981 and March 1983, retrobulbar anaesthetic drugs; were injected on 3,453 eyes in preparation for ocular surgery. The incidence of retrobulbar orbital haemorrhage was .75% (26 of 3,453 eyes). This complication forced the postponement of surgical procedure to a later date. In 65% (17 of 26 eyes) surgery was carried out within six weeks, while in other cases the interval was longer. This complication of local anaesthesia did not have any adverse effect on the long term management of these cases., except for the temporary setback to their surgical schedule.
