Abstract The use of succinylcholine in ocular trauma is controversial because it raises intraocular pressure. This article reviews the advantages and disadvantages of succinylcholine and its alternatives, including regional anesthesia for open globe injuries. Finally, an algorithm is proposed for airway management of patients with penetrating eye injuries, highlighting circumstances where succinylcholine may be the safest muscle relaxant.
