Abstract

Retrobulbar injection of anesthesia is one of the most common procedures performed for ophthalmic surgery. Complications are rare but can be potentially serious, including retrobulbar hemorrhage, brainstem anesthesia, and inadvertent globe perforation. This is the preliminary report describing branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) secondary to accidental retrobulbar needle laceration with subsequent pre-retinal neovascularization.
