Penetrating globe injury is a possible complication after ocular local anesthesia (including peribulbar and retrobulbar blocks).1-3 Regional nerve blocks of the face are frequently performed by a variety of physicians, including anesthesiologists, otolaryngologists, and other facial surgeons. We describe a case of penetrating globe injury that occurred during an extraoral infraorbital block due to passage of the needle through the infraorbital canal.
