Alternative Medicines to cure High IOP (IntraOcular Eye Pressure) or Glaucoma

Besides traditional allopathic medicines, there are a few popular alternative ways to keep IOP under control, specially in Homeopathy and Ayurveda. However, you need an expert Doctor to diagnose and recommend the medicine based on your body type:

  • In Homeopathy, a medicine is available which you can take in liquid form. It is very powerful, only 2 drops in ┬ácup of water can reduce the eye pressure by up to 10 points. However, it mellows down your mood and aggression.


  • In Ayurveda, diet change is recommended to avoid formation of “AAM”, specially avoiding all kinds of dairy and wheat. Undigested food can create blockages in the circulatory system of the body which is a reason for high IOP.


  • Some Ayurvedic medicines are available to reduce AAM and either VAATA, PITTA or KAPHA. These, along with diet can help cure high IOP.

Foods causing increase in excessive body heat have also been blamed for high eye pressure.

As alternative treatments require careful diagnoses based on the body type of the person, a good experienced doctor in Ayurveda or Homeopathy only can recommend which medicine will work for you. However, it helps to know that there are options available.

    It is surprising that so many people with no family history of Glaucoma have been diagnosed with high IOP in the recent past. We need to evaluate what is there in the modern diet or lifestyle that could be causing this.
