    Many factors can affect intracocular pressure. High eye pressure without treated can lead to glaucoma. Age is a common factor that can affect intracocular pressure. Glaucoma is found mostly in people who are over 60 years old. People with a family history of glaucoma have a higher risk of developing glaucoma. So family history is one of the factors that affect intracocular pressure. High myopia can also lead to glaucoma, thus myopia can also affect intracocular pressure.
