Abstract We surveyed the current practice of local anaesthesia for routine ocular surgery by consultant anaesthetists in the Wessex region using a postal questionnaire. Most consultants were in agreement concerning the type and technique of block, and monitoring to be used during local anaesthesia for ocular surgery. The issue of teaching for trainee anaesthetists produced a varied response. We found that a different level of perioperative preparation and monitoring was used from that recommended by the Joint Working Party on the subject in 1993.
