In brief: Not from the eyes

Papilledema is a swelling of the optic disc at the back of the eye from cerebral fluid transmitted from a brain with elevated pressure.
This cannot be treated from the eyes - only diagnosed. The cause of the pressure must be determined and corrected. Your neurologist is the best for dealing with this.
