Quick Change in IOP

Just as I was pressing the button to take the last reading for my left eye, my husband called to tell me there was an ambulance at his niece's house across the road. That reading was {30}.

Vitamins and pressure

Submitted by billym on Thu, 07/10/2008 - 11:22pm

I guess I am like a lot of people, I take vitamins in hopes of preventing desease and to feel better. I started taking lots of Leutin and 2 1000mg of bilberry each day since they are supposed to be eye vitamins. I told a friend about the bilberry and he said it made his eyes water and I noticed mine do too.  Has anyone who tests their own pressure ever taken these vitamins to see if they bring the pressure down?
