Due to persistence of higher intraocular pressure (IOP) optic nerve may damage and the end result is eye disorder, the glaucoma which if not control vision is lost however people can develop glaucoma that had normal IOP. Various factors are involved in causing Ocular hypertension. Here we have also discussed the involvement of gravitational force for circadian variations in IOP and diet for controlling the IOP.
