Abstract: Purpose: To determine the influence of refractive surgery on intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements obtained using an iCare rebound tonometer and a Goldmann applanation tonometer. Setting: School of Optometry, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong, China. Methods: Intraocular pressure was measured using the rebound tonometer and applanation tonometer before and 1 month after uneventful LASIK for myopia. Results: The IOP was measured in 96 eyes (96 patients). The preoperative IOP measured by rebound tonometry (mean 16.7 mm Hg ?? 3.0 [SD]) was statistically significantly higher than by Goldmann applanation tonometry (mean 15.4 ?? 2.5 mm Hg) (P<.01, Wilcoxon test). There was no statistically significantly difference in postoperative measurements between the 2 tonometers (mean 11.9 ?? 2.6 mm Hg and 12.0 ?? 2.4 mm Hg, respectively) (P>.05, Wilcoxon tes
