In this video we reviewed a 2019 study published in the Journal of Glaucoma where patients already being treated for primary open angle glaucoma were assigned either as a control group or as a treatment group. The Control group was instructed to keep taking their medications as instructed but otherwise received no further instructions. The Treatment group was assigned to perform mindfulness meditation with a meditation guide for 1 hour a day for 3 weeks.
After looking at eye pressure, stress hormones and quality of life measures, the study found that about 75% of the treatment group had a reduction in high eye pressure by about 25%

Open angle glaucoma treatment typically involves medicated eye drops or surgical procedures to lower the intraocular pressure. While this study does support that natural remedies such as meditation can lower the high ocular eye pressure, it is important to note the patients in this study also continued their medical treatment for glaucoma.

Please continue to take your medications for glaucoma treatment and consult with your treating eye doctor before ever discontinuing your glaucoma treatments.
