Thirty-four patients are studied after scleral buckling to document the changes in intraocular pressure, corneal curvature and thickness, anterior chamber depth, chamber angle, and tonographic values. With the exception of minimal chamber angle changes and lessened scleral rigidity, all changes appeared to be transient, and values returned to their preoperative levels two months postoperatively.
