Glaucoma is a disease that affects the eye and can result in loss of sight. Treatments of glaucoma range from medication to surgery. For some, a more natural and holistic approach to glaucoma therapy is desirable.


1. According to the Glaucoma Research Foundation, vitamins A, E and C are antioxidants that promote eye health. Zinc and copper are important minerals as well. However, according to Dr. John Hetherington, a clinical professor of ophthalmology at the University of California at San Francisco, there is no scientific evidence that shows a direct connection between vitamin consumption and relief of inner eye pressure associated with glaucoma.


2. Studies, such as one conducted by Dr. EJ Higginbotham et. al, have shown that consuming caffeine can negatively effect the eyes by raising inner eye pressure. It is also important, according to the Glaucoma Research Foundation, to avoid drinking a quart of water in less than 20 minutes, as this can also increase inner eye pressure.
