Is there any way to naturally decrease intraocular pressure?

Agree : The one thing worth mentioning is that the effect of exercise is typically transient - to enjoy the lowering iop effect, the exercise must be done on a regular basis. All types of exercise (aerobic, isometric, etc) seem to have some benefit. ...Read more

Is it possible that succinylcholine drugs(nicotinic depolarizing neuromuscular blocker) decrease intraocular pressure?

No: Succinylcholine is known to increase intraocular minimally when given to secure the airway. The increase is small and passing, therefore it has been used in patients with increased intraocular pressure. ...Read more

Can succinylcholine drugs (nicotinic depolarizing neuromuscular blocker) decrease intraocular pressure? Any answers appreciated!

Can succinylcholine drugs (nicotinic depolarizing neuromuscular blocker) decrease intraocular pressure? Any answers appreciated!

No.: Succinylcholine actually causes an increase in intraocular pressure for about 10 minutes after administration. Classic teaching was not to use succ in people with open globe injuries. There are situations, though, where using succ with other agents that lower IOP is preferred because it makes intubation more smooth, avoiding hypertension and airway reactivity that is worse for the situation anyway ...Read more

Could you feel intraocular pressure?

Could you feel intraocular pressure?

Generally no: The normal eye pressure range is 10-21. Anything above this might be elevated but you will not feel that elevation until the value reaches the high 40's or above. This is why pressure should always be taken when you visit your ophthalmologist as the feeling of pressure is not a clue for the patient. ...Read more

Many ways: The two most common methods are pneumatic tonometry (the puff of air method ) and applanation tonometry (more accurate but requires eye drops). ...Read more

How is intraocular pressure typically measured?

How is intraocular pressure typically measured?

Different ways: Commonly, goldmann applanation with the blue light or air puff pneumotonometer. We also use tonopen, icare, pascal, reichert's, perkin's, and palpation depending on the cornea status. Schiotz is rarely used anymore. ...Read more
