Purpose: : To assess the stability of intraocularpressure following 23 gauge suturelesstransconjunctival vitrectomy

Methods: : Retrospective review of intraocular pressures in the immediate postoperative period in 31 patients who underwent surgery using a "2-step" 23 gauge vitrectomy system.

Results: : One patient had an intraocular pressure lower than 6mmHg, 3 patients had intraocular pressures lower than 10mmHg. The remainder of intraocular pressures were at or above 10mmHg. These measurements were stable the following day.

Conclusions: : In our patients, IOP was remarkably stable. This outcome may be specific to the technique used.
