To study short term side effects of peribulbar injection of traiamcilone acetate including rise in intra ocular pressure Materials and methods 50 eyes were studied for rise in intra ocular pressure after administration of peri bulbar injection of traimcilone acetate Iop by goldman applanation tonometry with corrected pachymetry was taken on the day of administration and 3 days after the administration. A rise in greater than 6 mmHg than the previous study was considered significant. Results were compared with standard paired T test. Observations Out of 50 patients, 30 had bilateral eye disease Highest number of injections were given for age related macular degeneration Max rise of iop was seen as 18 mm Hg Significant iop rise of iop was seen in 4 patients Results There is no significant short term rise of iop following peribulbar injection of triamcinolone
