Vitamin C (1969) and Glaucoma

Learn more about holistic treatment of glaucoma.

In several studies, researchers found that Vitamin C, in larger doses, have lowered intraocular eye pressure - this is important for glaucoma. This happened through several body mechanisms, including increased blood osmolarity (a measure of pressure, as in osmosis), lower aqueous production, improved movement of fluids in the eye and collagen support.
