Intraocular pressure changes at different gaze positions after superior rectus muscle-lateral rectus muscle loop myopexy in highly myopic strabismus.

PURPOSE: To evaluate changes in intraocular pressure (IOP) at different gaze positions before and after superior rectus muscle-lateral rectus muscle (SR-LR) loop myopexy in highly myopic strabismus (HMS).

STUDY DESIGN: Nonrandomized clinical, prospective, interventional trial.

METHODS: Fourteen patients with HMS (18 eyes) who underwent SR-LR loop myopexy were divided into 3 groups: < 100 prism diopters (PD) (mild esotropia [ET] group), > 100 PD (large ET group), and > 100 PD, and simultaneous recession of the medial rectus (MR) muscle was performed (large ET + MR group). Intraocular pressure was measured preoperatively and postoperatively at the primary, abduction, and adduction positions in each group.

RESULTS: Intraocular pressure did not change after surgery in the mild ET group. Intraocular pressure significantly decreased in the abduction position (from 20.0 ± 2.1 to 16.0 ± 1.9 mmHg, P = 0.043) in the large ET group and in the abduction (from 22.2 ± 5.9 to 15.6 ± 4.3 mmHg, P = 0.048) and primary positions (from 15.8 ± 5.0 to 10.2 ± 2.8 mmHg, P = 0.043) in the large ET + MR group. The preoperative significant differences in IOP between the abduction and adduction positions in the large ET group (7.4 ± 3.4 mmHg) and the large ET + MR group (10.0 ± 5.5 mmHg) disappeared postoperatively (3.2 ± 2.8 mmHg and 3.6 ± 1.7 mmHg, respectively). The differences in IOP between abduction and adduction were similar in all the groups.

CONCLUSION: SR-LR loop myopexy decreased IOP in patients with HMS in the abduction and primary positions.
