To prevent accidental intraocular injection after inadvertent single needle perforation of the eyeball, the authors recommend moving the needle and watching for corresponding movement of the globe following peribulbar or retrobulbar placement of the needle and prior to injecting. The authors have found this technique to be safe and reliable, with negligible morbidity.
