    You should give up smoking which will be bad for your eyes and your health of body. Glaucoma is usually caused by the high eye pressure which you need to pay attention to. You should stop smoking which may stimulate your eyes nerves and let your glaucoma get serious. At the same time, smoking will make your eyes get dry which you need to pay attention to. You should stop smoking and keep balance at the diet to make it be healthy. You could eat more food with vitamin C to moisture your eyes. You could also have the good rest for the eyes. It is very important which you should pay attention to.

    Well, yes, of course you should give up smoking, or it will just make the glaucoma become more serious. Generally speaking, glaucoma is related to a group of diseases and it can cause damage to the optic nerve as a result of increased pressure within the eye. And there are many factors which can cause it, such as a severe eye infection, injury, blocked blood vessels or inflammatory conditions of the eye. And as we know that by smoking, it will not only affect our liver, but also our eyes. And in that way, your glaucoma can be severe. So just pay more attention to it. Also, air pollution, and heavy alcohol consumption should be avoided too.
