There are several methods for local and general anesthesia in ophthalmological surgery that attempt to provide a stress and pain-free operating environment for both patient and surgeon. The decision-making depends on medical as well as on ophthalmological criteria and jointly falls to ophthalmologists and anesthesiologists. Topical and injective anesthesia (with or without conscious sedation) are generally methods of choice but general anesthesia can be preferable or mandatory in patients with particular internal diseases, children, emergencies and for extended surgical procedures. Pre-emptive analgesia before the operation is a meaningful complement in ophthalmological anesthesia.
