If you have an elevated eye pressure due to steroid eye drops, will the eye pressure decrease afterwards?

In brief: Yes

In general, once the drops have worn off (2-7 days), the pressure will return to the levels you had prior to the steroid drops.

In brief: Yes.

But elevated eye pressure should be followed by your eye specialist with tonometry even after your stop the eye drops.
