All necessary preparations to stop glaucoma

Glaucoma

In glaucoma, impaired fluid circulation in the eye produces high pressure in the posterior chamber that damages the optic nerve. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness (after diabetes) in the developed countries of the world. Glaucoma usually develops slowly over months to years. The warning signs are halos appearing around lights, blurred vision, watering in the eyes, headache, and, when advanced, constriction of the visual field. Those with a family history of glaucoma, who are nearsighted, or who are taking antihypertensive drugs or steroids have a greater risk of glaucoma.

 

Diet – Glaucoma

Food sensitivities may increase intraocular pressure in people with glaucoma. Caffeine ingestion increases pressure in the eye, and people with glaucoma should avoid caffeine. Excess dietary protein and trans-fatty acids (in hydrogenated fats) are associated with increased risk of glaucoma.

Micronutrients – Glaucoma

  • Vitamin C with bioflavonoids 1–2 g vitamin C with 200 mg rutin Vitamin C, particularly together with rutin bioflavonoids may help reduce eye press.
  • Thiamin 25 mg Thiamin deficiency may contribute to development of glaucoma
  • Multimineral supplement Should contain zinc (10–20 mg) and chromium (200 μg) Reduced zinc and chromium intake is associated with higher eye pressure, and deficiencies may aggravate glaucoma
