Oral Omega-3 Supplementation Lowers Eye Pressure

Oral Omega-3 Supplementation Lowers Intraocular Pressure in Normotensive Adults

Elevated intraocular pressure (abbreviated IOP, and also called eye pressure) is the only medically treatable risk factor for the sight-threatening eye disease, glaucoma. In this study, researchers investigated whether oral omega-3 fish oil supplements affect intraocular pressure in normotensive adults.

The conclusion of the study states, "Oral omega-3 supplementation for 3 months significantly reduced IOP in normotensive adults."

We can also, potentially, install light sensors onto the spare neurons in blind people, converting the spare neurons into a camera so they can send info to the brain. We've done this in mice.

Conducting research on relaxation techniques to lower eye pressure

Submitted by Jerrold Ehrlich on Fri, 01/28/2011 - 1:35pm

I am an attorney and my spouse is a glaucoma patient. In the past I have volunteered some of my time to help FitEyes look into questions related to research projects and other activities related to the non-medical treatment of elevated 
intraocular pressure. I would like to share my feedback in two areas:

  • our outstanding questions
  • what we know so far.

Here are some of the outstanding questions that apply directly to the project presently under discussion, which is related to using a relaxation technique to lower intraocular pressure.
