Sedation/analgesia for ophthalmologic surgery is safe and effective. Ideal sedation can be achieved by careful intravenous titration while monitoring the effect of the appropriate sedative and analgesic agents. The choice of sedation/analgesia strategy should be based on patient preference and the assessment of risk for adverse events. Thorough preoperative screening and preparation of the patient is most important in obtaining cooperation and patient acceptance.
