20% of retrobulbar group showed experiencing unacceptable level of pain on visual pain scale (1-10) on administration of anesthesia the mean was 2.0 for peribulbar group and 4.0 for retrobulbar.The mean of interval administration of anesthesia and surgery was 10 min ,while it was 3min in retrobulbar. The chemosis was 80% in peribulabar .congunctival hemorrhage was 60 % in retrobulbar.the retrobulbar was 10% in retrobulbar group while in peribulbar group was 0 %
