Background. Spinal anesthesia has become appropriate for many surgical procedures. Neuraxial anesthesia can result in acute and late complications like hypotension, bradycardia, local anesthetic toxicity, postdural-puncture headache, backache and spinal nerve damage. Although the body's physiological responses to spinal anesthesia are well understood, its effects on intraocular pressure (IOP) haven't been mentioned before.
