The primary aim of “Principles and Practice of Ophthalmic Anaesthesia” is to provide basic knowledge and practical clinical information about anaesthesia for ocular surgery. The unique feature of this book, the first of its kind, is intended to be of assistance to both anaesthetists and ophthalmologists in their practices. The practical advice is provided on preoperative medical testing, sedation techniques, monitoring of patients, perioperative care and management of anaesthetic complications. Chapters are also dedicated to anaesthesia techniques suitable for different ocular surgeries (cataract, squint, glaucoma, vitreoretinal procedures, paediatric procedures, etc.). The book is a boon to beginners as it gives a thorough insight of basic sciences ranging from anatomy of the orbit, pharmacology of local anaesthetic agents to the different techniques of regional anaesthesia. It also effectively cautions ophthalmic surgeons on the adverse effects and emergencies that may occur during the administration of anaesthesia. The book includes chapters on ocular physiology, pharmacology, systemic effects of ocular medications, effect of anaesthesia on pupil and intraocular pressure, and management of painful blind eye. Numerous illustrations have been included so that readers can understand and collate the information easily.
