Make sure to bookmark this comprehensive symposium on the most novel approach to ophthalmic anaesthesia, given by dedicated ophthalmic anaesthetists and anterior segment surgeons, including a dry-lab for subtenon blocks at the end of the session.

The patient’s experience during surgery is one of the main factors for patient satisfaction with their surgeon – this is underestimated by many of us.

Eye surgery is fraught with anxiety for our patients often translating to intra-and postoperative pain and complications. Apart from providing anxiolysis, sedation or general anaesthesia, dedicated ophthalmic anaesthetists embed safe locoregional anaesthesia in a clinical setting that accounts for anxiety-soothing expectation management.

The symposium will be covering several topics, including Increasing Sharp-Needle Block Safety Through Ultrasound, Ophthalmic Anaesthesia Applied by Surgeons Without Anaesthesia Cooperation, and The Perfect Anaesthesia Strategy for a Teaching Case in Cataract Surgery.
