Intraocular pressure (IOP) has been shown to change with body position. Several studies have shown that the lateral decubitus position (LDP) is associated with a significant increase in IOP in the dependent eye. However, whether anesthetic agents alter IOP in the LDP remains unclear. This study investigated the effect of sevoflurane and propofol anesthesia on IOP in the LDP. A total of 28 patients undergoing surgery in the LDP were included. Patients were randomly allocated to sevoflurane or… CONTINUE READING
