    Yes, as our body are interconnected, when we are in panic, our adrenal glands will inevitably produce a lot of adrenaline. Further, the sudden increased adrenaline make us excited, or even anxiety due to our blood pressure start to pump. As our eyes strong and prompt reaction to the tiny hormone imbalance in our body, we will widen our eyes leading to eye dryness. Besides, the feeling of shortness of breath cause us to breath excessive oxygen worse the psychological panic and make the blood rush into our brain. As a result, we will suffer high eye pressure. The best way to relieve the situation is to calm down and have a peaceful mind. By the way, a good rest can help.
