Glaucoma is a serious eye disease characterized by abnormally high intraocular fluid pressure. This is caused by a clogged tiny mesh in the eye that allows fluid to drain. The clogging is usually caused by free radical damage, which results in debris in the lymph. This pressure, if left untreated, can damage the retina and destroy the optic nerve, resulting in vision loss or blindness. Glaucoma is, in fact, the most common cause of blindness. People of African ancestry, those with diabetes, high blood pressure, severe myopia (nearsightedness), or a family history of glaucoma, and those taking corticosteroid medications are all risk factors for this disease.
Diabetes, food allergies, excessive caffeine and sugar consumption, allergies, adrenal exhaustion, liver and thyroid problems, and arteriosclerosis are all risk factors.
Coffee, as well as other caffeine-containing foods and beverages such as chocolate and soft drinks, should be avoided.
Taking eye relaxants and allowing the drain to open may be beneficial. Cannabis is one such highly effective but illegal remedy. It's possible that kava kava or lobelia will have a similar effect.
