In brief: Some may
Very few medications cause elevated eye pressure in and of themselves.
Some eyes are shaped in such a way as to be at risk for increased pressure (narrow angles). Certain medications are able to cause narrow angles to become even more narrow, causing the pressure in the eye to elevate. If you are at risk for certain glaucomas, you should see a doctor before starting any new diet medication.

In brief: Maybe
Patients with angle closure glaucoma may experience increases in eye pressure with some herbal preparations - best to check first.
