Ocular hypertension

Ocular hypertension is a condition in which the pressure in side the eye is higher than normal (>21mmHg). High pressures in the eye can lead to a sight threatening condition called "Glaucoma".

Some people can have ocular hypertension without developing any damage to their eyes or vision.


Hypertension is not something that can self-diagnosed as there are no symptoms, such red or itchy eyes. To diagnose ocular hypertension you will need to consult with your eye care specialist. 

If you have glaucoma in the family, it is recommended that you get your eyes tested regularly for a pressure check.
