We evaluated the efficacy and safety of anterior chamber anesthesia in 19 cases with bilateral cataract. One eye was operated by topical anesthesia with 2% lidocaine. The fellow eye was operated by additional anterior chamber anesthesia with 0.5% lidocaine. Postoperative questionnaires gave responses implying that the latter method results in lesser pain during surgery. There was no differences between both groups regarding postoperative slitlamp findings, intraocular pressure, aqueous findings and corneal endothelial cells. The findings show that additional anterior chamber anesthesia promises to be of value because of its efficacy and safety.
