Red Wine Eye Pressure Caused Glaucoma
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
Please help, how much red wine is necessary to drink for lowering eye pressure caused by glaucoma?
Does red eye congestion or reaction due to glaucoma eye drops prevent it from functioning and reducing the eye pressure?
No: It would not raise intraocular pressure.Get a more detailed answer ›
When I get angry or stressed my left eye hurts and my skin under my left eye burns and become red... Is it high eye pressure? Is it sign of glacoma?
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
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
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
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
If gas bubble is required in vitrectomy for peeling macular pucker will it raise eye pressure & cause high risk for progression of existing Glaucoma?

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
Some choices: Do not overdrink liquids this can elevate eye pressure in extremes. Doing upside down exercizes can increase eye pressure just by adding the hydrostatic pressure of the blood column. One should treat sleep apnea if that is a problem. If blood pressure is high lowering should be done carefully in glaucoma prone patients as rapid lowering can cause damage to the nerve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Corneal thickness is 510+ 2. In glaucoma does that mean you add 2 points to my eye pressure reading of 15?
No: The more important way to judge the pressure in the eye is whether or not there is any evidence of damage from pressure on the optic nerve head. The corneal thickness is a separate measurement the shows whether there is or is not an increased risk of developing glaucoma. Your measurement of 510 means that you do have an increase risk to developing glaucoma. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Intraocular pressure should always be measured prior to dilation as it typically increases a little after dilation, especially when monitoring for glaucoma. There are a few conditions where it may be checked after and eye doctors will typically recheck pressures after dilation to ensure accuracy of their technician, but as a rule, this should be documented prior to dilation. ...Read more
Warning: Seasonal allergy meds may have a warning about glaucoma. This is relevant to narrow angle glaucoma patients, since it is theoretically possible to induce an angle closure attack if not already treated--check with your eye doctor to see if you are at risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
