Sleeping with Head Elevated to Reduce Eye Pressure

Welcome. If you are new to, please read about how to revolutionize your glaucoma management here.

Posture can have a profound effect on intraocular pressure for glaucoma patients. I have even found that lying down, which is something we all do almost every day, can elevate my intraocular pressure from normal to high levels.

 Much of my focus has been on high-frequency monitoring of intraocular pressure with currently available technology. The current standard in ophthalmology practice seems to be monitoring intraocular pressure at a frequency of once every three to twelve months, depending on specific patient factors. In contrast, my research efforts look at what is possible when intraocular pressure is monitored as frequently as hundreds of times per day for many consecutive days.
