Peribulbar anesthesia is suitable for vitreoretinal (VR) surgery. Dexmedetomidine has been used in peribulbar block (PBB) to improve akinesia and analgesia. We aimed to study the efficacy of adding dexmedetomidine to 0.75% Ropivacaine in PBB for VR surgery. The primary outcome was the requirement of block supplementation and secondary outcome was post-operative analgesic requirement.
