You may be familiar with high blood pressure and hypertension, but are you familiar with ocular hypertension or high intraocular pressure? All the information you require regarding this eye condition, along with the possibility that you are at risk, is provided below.
The pressure inside your eyes is called intraocular pressure (IOP). Ocular hypertension results when that pressure is greater than usual. Ocular hypertension is not a disease of the eyes in and of itself, but it is a sign that glaucoma may develop.
