Abstract

PURPOSE: To assess the effects of hyperopic and myopic laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) on the intraocular pressure (IOP) measurement by Goldmann applanation tonometry. METHODS: Intraocular pressure was measured by Goldmann applanation tonometry pre- and postoperatively in 48 hyperopic eyes (26 patients) and 56 myopic eyes (28 patients). RESULTS: The mean preoperative spherical equivalent refraction was +3.97±2.48 diopters (D) in the hyperopic group and -6.73±4.79 D in the myopic group. Attempted correction was equivalent to preoperative refraction in each group. Mean preoperative IOP was 14.22±2.56 mmHg and 13.70±2.09 mmHg in the hyperopic and myopic groups, respectively. Following LASIK, the mean IOP was 11.85±2.52 mmHg and 11.38±3.08 mmHg in the hyperopic and myopic groups, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: The IOP measurement was significantly reduced (P
