Normal Intraocular Pressure

Elevated intraocular pressure is a risk factor for developing glaucoma.

The measurement of intraocular pressure is a way to determine the amount of aqueous fluid in the front of the eye. Normal intraocular pressure requires a balance between aqueous fluid production and fluid drainage, and in people with glaucoma, this mechanism becomes unbalanced.
