I wish to mention the technique Gyoshi Ho which  is used in Reiki. This techinque is also known as eyes healing and heres a small description about this technique : http://www.aetw.org/d_gyoshi.htm

Is possible that Gyoshi Ho can reduce IOP?

Effect of Sleeping Posture on Intraocular Pressure

Submitted by dave on Sun, 04/04/2010 - 1:55pm

A research study presented as a "poster" at ARVO 2010 indicated that the position of one's head (and body) during sleep can have an effect on intraocular pressure. For example, your eye pressure may be lower if you sleep on your back compared to sleeping on your side. (Furthermore, in my own experience, sleeping on your stomach may be the worst for IOP.)

Not discussed in this particular study was any difference in intraocular pressure between eyes. There is some evidence that if you sleep on your left side, intraocular pressure in the left eye could be higher.

Eating eggplant does NOT reduce eye pressure in our tests

It has come to my attention that a number of people are reading the headline from our discussion about eggplant and intraocular pressure and coming to a conclusion without actually reading the article. That's not a good idea in this case.

Please read the article and the comments. Here's the link: Eating eggplant reduces eye pressure

I suspected stress was related to glaucoma

Submitted by muse on Sat, 03/13/2010 - 5:34pm

When I went to get my eyes examined for a new prescription, the Dr. told me I had glaucoma. I couldn't believe it. I had so many health problems already due to stress, that I cried and cried. He said my eyes were dry and right away I figured it was from the adrenal exhaustion I suffered a couple years back, which I am on the mend from... but it is taking time. My nails, skin, hair, mouth and now eyes were dry. It is a good thing I know I am not a body. ~g~ I am a huge fan of Byron Katie and Gary Renard's contributions to the world.

Effect of Sleeping in a Head-Up Position on Intraocular Pressure in Patients with Glaucoma

Submitted by dave on Wed, 03/03/2010 - 2:28pm

I am reading this study now. I like the fact that they did investigate ocular perfusion pressure (OPP) while monitoring the intraocular pressure (IOP) during this study, and that they checked IOP in the sleeping position (rather than sitting the patient up). So, with a quick glance, the methodology looks acceptable to me.

Purpose: To determine whether a 30-degree head-up sleeping position decreases nocturnal intraocular pressure (IOP) compared with lying flat in patients with glaucoma.

Intraocular Pressure in a Spiritual Context

Submitted by dave on Wed, 02/24/2010 - 9:59am

Recently here on FitEyes, readers have asked about the relationship between intraocular pressure about meditation. That prompted me to write this post about some of the broader spiritual aspects of what I do as well as how I view intraocular pressure in my own life and in my work as a Serene Impulse teacher.

I can sense elevated intraocular pressure

Submitted by Suekay on Sat, 01/30/2010 - 6:54pm

Glaucoma is known as the silent thief of sight because (in its common forms) there is no pain and no other symptoms until the damage has been done.

I don't have glaucoma, I have high IOP due to prolonged use of steroid drops. I know when the pressure is high, I can feel it. Firstly I get a pulsing, this means the pressure is up to about 25-30 then I get feelings of pressure and lastly if i blink fast I can see black striations in the shape of my iris.

Using lemon to lower my eye pressure from 21 to 14

Submitted by manasbahi on Sat, 01/30/2010 - 6:48pm

I do use once a week lemon drop, it has rules to do it. the lemon should be fresh and you cut it with a clean knife , and it should be at night before bed time. I squeeze one drop in each eye. and when Iwent to the dr. it droped from 21 to 14 which is great. I know it hurts a lot for few seconds then I feel cool in my eyes. " I wonder if anyone tried this"? I got the from my 90 years aunt who died and she had 20/20 eye vision and can thread the string in the needle.
