Lidocaine Pharmacodynamics
Lidocaine by its chemical structure belongs to the derivatives of acetanilide and has a pronounced local anesthetic effect. Local anesthetic effect is caused by inhibition of nerve conduction through blockade of sodium channels in nerve endings and nerve fibers. Anesthetic effect of lidocaine develops 5-10 minutes after instillation into the conjunctival sac, the duration of action is 60-120 minutes.

Measurement of intraocular pressure (tonometry);
