    Background Succinylcholine is still recommended for some situations in open globe injuries. However, the use of succinylcholine is associated with an increase in intraocular pressure (IOP). This may be deleterious in open globe injuries. No method has previously been shown to abolish completely...

    The article explores the effects of anaesthetic drugs on the eye. Anaesthetic drugs may decrease or increase intraocular pressure (IOP). Ketamine may cause an increase in IOP, while thiopental, propofol and etomidate all cause a drop in IOP. Sevoflurane has been linked with a decreased incidence...
