Does drinking a lot of caffeinated beverages affect glaucoma and does having sinus congestion affect glaucoma?

Probably not: There is a temporary increase in the eye pressure to a small degree from the ingestion of a large volume of liquid until the kidney gets rid of it.

Sleepytime & tension tamer tea by celestial seasoning, any risks for high blood pressure or drug interactions?Ragweed allergy should I avoid chamomile

No problem: I have not found any ingredient in these herbal tea which would cause hypertension. As for ragweed allergy, you are actually allergic to the airborne pollen and not to the flower itself. Even if the chamomile pollen in the flower cross-react with ragweed, it will be highly unlikely to cause you allergic symptoms given that the chamomile would have been subjected to processing and heating . ...Read more

Can apple pectin or other natural herbs reduce eye floaters in the eye?

No: Some people's floaters become less noticeable after an encounter with apple pectin, natural herbs, cookies-and-cream ice cream, watching Spiderman 3, or baking a pan of brownies.
