Please tell me what does high eye pressure mean?

Please tell me what does high eye pressure mean?

Glaucoma: Intraocular pressure, iop. Normal is between 10-21. This is an indicator of the relative pressure in the eye. Fluid is formed behind the lens and flows into channels in the front of the eye. Elevated pressure can indicate glaucoma, that can cause vision loss by damage to the optic nerve. It is typically painless. Low pressure can indicate the eye is very sick, from inflammation or scarring. ...Read more

Does increased eye pressure mean that I have glaucoma?

Does increased eye pressure mean that I have 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.

My optician said I have high eye pressure. What does this mean?

My optician said I have high eye pressure. What does this mean?

Rule out glaucoma: Eye pressure normally runs between 10 and 20mmhg (milimeters of mercury). If the pressure runs higher, eye doctors want to evaluate if there is an underlying cause for it, such as glaucoma. Other factors can cause the pressure to appear high, such as a thick cornea or excessive squeezing during the test. Have a full dilated eye examination soon. ...Read more

Doctor said my eye pressure is borderline, what does that mean?

Doctor said my eye pressure is borderline, what does that mean?

Suspect glaucoma: Your eyes have a normal range of pressure that your eye doctor checks to screen for glaucoma. The 'normal' range is 10-21. Borderline means on the border, so your pressure may be 20-21. There are other things to check for glaucoma including optic nerve cupping and visual field testing. Make sure the docto checked your corneal thickness because that can effect the pressure measurement.. ...Read more

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 more

Moderate Glaucoma with low eye pressure but last exam Dr. Says I have optic atrophy. What does this mean?

Moderate Glaucoma with low eye pressure but last exam Dr. Says I have optic atrophy. What does this mean?

See a specialist: It is very common for people to be misdiagnosed with "Low Tension Glaucoma" or "Normal Tension Glaucoma." If you have optic atrophy, this means it is probably not glaucoma, and you need to see a specialist, such as a neuro-ophthalmologist, to check for other causes. This will likely include getting an MRI to check for a brain or optic nerve tumor. ...Read more

Why eye pressure raise?

Why eye pressure raise?

Glaucoma: For the eye to function, a balance must exist between the aqueous fluid secreted by the ciliary body, and the outflow of fluid by way of the trabecular meshwork. If too much fluid is produced or too little drains out, the intraocular pressure increases, since after infancy, the eyeball cannot expand like a balloon. Untreated elevated eye pressure damages the optic nerve possibly causing blindness. ...Read more
