In all the years of the forum, I can't remember anyone reporting their introcular pressure being too low after a graft. What does sometimes happen is that IOP rises after a graft because some people have that reaction to the steroid drops that we all have to use for a while after a graft. It's something that's regularly monitored for, and drops to reduce the pressure usually solve things quickly.

My pressure shot up to 70 plus. I got put on mannitrol to lower it. It then dropped to 5. This was last Friday. It's not come back up since .
