Is low vitamin-D associated with glaucoma?

What is vitamin D and what does it do?

Vitamin D is a nutrient found in some foods that is needed for health, to maintain strong bones and much more. Muscles need it to move, for example. Nerves need it to carry messages between the brain and every body part, and the immune system needs vitamin D to fight off invading bacteria and viruses.

Melatonin and Glaucoma

Melatonin is a hormone synthesized in both plants and animals from the amino acid L-tryptophan. In mammals, such as humans, it is secreted by the pineal gland -- and by the retina -- and modulates the body's sleep pattern (and much more). Melatonin production in the body is triggered by darkness and inhibited by light, helping the body manage its natural rhythm. It is available over the counter as a dietary supplement in the United States.
