    Yes, it is very dangerous if you get high eye pressure. The high eye pressure can constrict your optic nerve and cause your papilla optic atrophy. If you don't pay more attention to your eyes, it will lead to serious consequences. This medical name is visual-field defect, we also called it glaucoma. So, you need to buy some eye drop and remember don't eat spicy food. Meanwhile, keep a good mood and eat food and vegetable high in Vitamin A, they are all very important!

    The eyeball of human being is a kind of sphere filled with fluid that constantly circulates in and out of the eye so as to keep a constant pressure inside the eyeball. In some cases, there is too much fluid getting into the eyeball without enough fluid to drain out, which can be caused by two reasons, one is that the body is producing too much fluid and the other is that a drainage canal is blocked. Therefore, the pressure that the fluid exerts on the rest of the eyeball grows too high. This high eye pressure can be dangerous and risky, and lead to vision-destroying complications. If it is left untreated, high eye pressure can cause glaucoma and permanent vision loss in some individuals. There are several reasons that cause high eye pressures, such as excessive aqueous production, inadequate aqueous drainage, certain medications, eye trauma as well as other eye conditions like ocular hypertension including pseudoexfoliation syndrome, pigment dispersion syndrome and corneal arcus. If you got high eye pressure, you can use some eye drops to reduce your eye pressure, and some people may choose to monitor their IOP and take a glaucoma surgery.
