I read with interest the recent article by Fezza et al.1 I congratulate the authors on their description of a new method for postoperative pain relief after orbital implant surgery (using a bupivacaine hydrochloride infusion into the orbit through an epidural catheter). The authors stated in their conclusion that it was an effective means to achieve postoperative pain control, simple, and well tolerated.
