Acute angle closure glaucoma is a rare complication of general anesthesia. However, in case of delayed diagnosis, it may lead to blindness. We present a case of bilateral acute angle closure glaucoma after cervical spine surgery under general anesthesia in a hypermetropic patient. In this case, the most likely trigger was the use of ephedrine, but nefopam administration and the prone surgical position are discussed as additional potential factors.
