Abstract
The effect of i.v. ondansetron, before induction of anaesthesia, on intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients undergoing cataract surgery was investigated. Forty patients (two groups of 20) received either ondansetron 4 mg (treatment group) or 0.9% saline (placebo group) in a double-blind controlled manner. There were no significant differences in IOP between the groups. Ondansetron had no significant effect on IOP during the study period.
