After corneal refractive surgery, patients need to use glucocorticoids for a long time to control the wound healing, However, it can cause elevated intraocular pressure, even glucocorticoid-induced glaucoma, therefore properly evaluating patients’ postoperative intraocular pressure(IOP) to avoid missing diagnosis of glucocorticoid- induced glaucoma and timely find glaucoma patients after corneal refractive surgery has an important clinical significance.The central corneal thickness(CCT), corneal curvature(CC), ablation depth, preoperative IOP and corneal biomechanics are responsible for IOP changes after corneal refractive surgery.To obtain accurate IOP value after corneal refractive surgery, this article reviewed the IOP measurements and their influential factors after surface, lamellar and all-in-one femtosecond laser refractive surgery.

Key words:

Refractive surgery, corneal; Intraocular pressure, measurement; Biomechanics, corneal
