Does flying on an airliner changer the eye pressures in glaucoma?

In brief: Maybe a little

Altitude can cause changes in eye pressure, but most commercial airplanes are pressurized to less than 8000 feet and private planes generally don't go high enough to make a difference.
Whatever the case, the duration of most flights is so short that it shouldn't make a difference. Glaucoma damage takes years to develop and a short spell of elevated pressure is not worrisome!

In brief: No

Not unless you have recent vitreo-retinal surgery including intra-ocular gas injection.
