In brief: 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.
