    Only indirectly. High salt intake will increase your blood pressure. Since the aqueous humor that determines intraocular pressure empties into the blood vessels, it is possible for temporary increases in blood pressure to also increase your eye pressure.

    Glaucoma or the increased eye pressure associated with it, you could be noticeably reduced with proper water and salt intakes, a friend of mine, who has not developed full blown glaucoma yet, and has not yet resorted to prescription eye drop treatment, has successfully lowered his eye pressure levels,just by increasing his daily water intake, and adding little unrefined salt to his daily diet even his eye doctor was pleasantly surprised.and so was my friend, with a lowered eye pressure reading, you also can reduce your eye pressure by improve your diet properly.
