Although topical anesthesia techniques for cataract surgery are evolving, injections are unavoidable in some cases. Our technique of injecting local anesthetic agents for akinesia of the orbicularis oculi and the globe via a single entry near the lateral canthus decreases the pain and patient anxiety about the number of injections and avoids the complications of retrobulbar injection. © 2001 ASCRS and ESCRS.
