Does Eye Pressure Around And Behind The Eye Cause Glaucoma
Various: Eye pressure can be falsely elevated (machine error, operator error, corneal scar, etc.), elevated due to thick central corneal thickness, high due to recent eye surgery (i.e. Retained viscoelastic, etc.), etc. However we commonly refer to high eye pressure as having glaucoma, but it's not always true since there are ocular hypertensives with high pressure that never develop glaucoma. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Many things: Glaucoma is caused by high intraocular pressure. Some people can have high pressures (ocular hypertension) and not have developed glaucoma yet. Many things can increase intraocular pressure including impaired "drainage channels" , neovascularization, inflammation, and impaired venous outflow. In order to determine the cause, a complete eye exam with an ophthalmologist would be required. ...Read more
Dr. Prescribed several eye drops including atropine for pain caused by increased eye pressure but i've heard atropine is not good for glaucoma.
Different type: Glaucoma of the classic type (open angle) requires medication and sometimes surgery. Glaucoma termed "acute" is due to an anatomical issue in the eye which can be precipitated by pupillary dilators such as atropine. Your eye doctor has no doubt ruled this out as a possibility so that Atropine in your case would be safe to use. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My glaucoma is stable with good pressure. If I have vitrectomy for macular pucker how likely is it eye pressure will raise & cause damage to nerve?
Damage unlikely: Retinal surgeons are very knowledgeable about the possibility of pressure rise after retinal surgery. They schedule follow up examinations to deal with this if it occurs and prevent damage. If they are comfortable that macular pucker surgery will correct your problem, then you should proceed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
None: Red wine has not been shown to reduce eye pressure. No dietary regimens reduce pressure sufficiently to be effective. You would be much better off using medication and any other treatment recommended by your eye doctor than to risk permanent vision loss with unproven treatments. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Pressure atrophy: One theory is that pressure too high for the back of the eye to withstand causes constriction of the blood flow with atrophy of the tissue (nerve fiber) supplied by that blood stream. They then atrophy and this is the basis for the thinning. Lowering the pressure below that threshold for damage prevents further blood vessel constriction and allows the remaining nerve fibers to stay healthy. ...Read more
Please help, how much red wine is necessary to drink for lowering eye pressure caused by glaucoma?
If gas bubble is required in vitrectomy for peeling macular pucker will it raise eye pressure & cause high risk for progression of existing Glaucoma?

Maybe: Glaucoma means the pressure in the eye over time has caused damage to the optic nerve. Increased eye pressure is a risk factor for glaucoma but it does not necessarily mean you have it. Examination and evaluation by an eye md can help determine if you have glaucoma or are at risk of glaucoma and if treatment is needed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Possibly so - other factors such as age and actual pressure readings will play a role in your specific risk for developing glaucoma. It would be wise to follow up with an eye specialist and understand your risk and recommendations for risk reduction through intra-ocular pressure control. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: Not all increased eye pressure results in glaucoma. Ocular hypertension is considered a glaucoma suspect and is followed until progressive optic nerve damage is detected, which can be a different pressure for different patients. Various ethnicities define elevated eye pressure with different cutoffs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
0-70: Minimum 0 mmhg when the eye is completely collapsed and too much fluid is exiting the eye for the amount made. Maximum somewhere around 70 mmhg since eventually the eye can't make any more fluid (ischemic ciliary body). With repeated injections, you may be able to make the eye pressure higher. Glaucoma is when the pressure causes retinal ganglion cell loss (a different number for everyone). ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
If my eye pressure has come out to be 24, is it for sure that i have glaucoma. if yes, then how can it be treated.?
Not definitive: Glaucoma is a condition in which the eye pressure exceeds the ability of the circulation in the back of the eye to withstand it. A pressure of 24 is normal for some. If you have no field loss, thick corneas and healthy looking discs, then you probably have nothing to worry about. Get a second opinion with an ophthalmologist to see what your status is. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
In glaucoma if target eye pressure is met, is it possible pressure won't need to be lowered further so that adding a 2nd drop won't be necessary.
Expert Dr.said glaucoma progressing too fast, but eye pressure is sufficiently lowered & nothing else he can do. Should I accept or get 2nd opinion?
