Eye Pressure

The eye pressure is the pressure inside the eye that is due to the fluid inside the eye. This fluid helps it maintain the shape as well as provide nutrients to the eye and remove waste. It is measured routinely during eye examinations to help screen for patients who may be at higher risk for glaucoma. The “normal” range is between 10-20mmHg. The quotations because, even if your eye pressure is within this range, you can still have glaucoma!


Eye pressure changes throughout the day and over the years, which is why your eye care practitioner may take eye pressure readings at the majority of your visits.


Moreover, here at Eye Plus, we don’t use the air puff method to check your eye pressure!
