The IOP was unmeasurable with the Goldmann applanation tonometer; rebound tonometry showed an IOP of 30 mm Hg in the central cornea and 58 mm Hg in the superior cornea. Medical treatment of the elevated IOP resulted in resolution of the accumulated interface fluid. This case highlights the inaccuracy of IOP measurements in the central cornea with interface fluid or central corneal edema caused by elevated IOP after LASIK and shows the efficacy of IOP measurements at the peripheral cornea using rebound tonometry. It also shows that uveitis can be a risk factor for interface fluid syndrome after LASIK.
