To assess the stability of intraocularpressure following 23 gauge suturelesstransconjunctival vitrectomy
Retrospective review of intraocular pressures in the immediate postoperative period in 31 patients who underwent surgery using a "2-step" 23 gauge vitrectomy system.
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.
In our patients, IOP was remarkably stable. This outcome may be specific to the technique used.
