Is there any way to lower eye pressure using home remedies?
Eating a healthy diet can maintain your overall health and may be good for your eye health as well. Regular exercise has been shown to reduce the eye pressure in some individuals with open angle glaucoma. Many herbal remedies are advertised for glaucoma but none have been proven effective in treating this potentially blinding disease. Herbal supplements should never be used in place of proven therapies that are prescribed by your doctor. You should always discuss any of these types of treatments with your ophthalmologist before trying them.
