    It really sounds crazy. However we can't get rid of this possibility. As we know, the inner material of the coffee will have the role of stimulating the nerves in the body which will make you awake. In addition, it will quick the work of the intestinal and stomach. However, its material will have the effect on the eye nerves. But too much amount will not cause the blindness with no other obvious related conditions.

    Nowadays, many workers are annoyed by the stress, and they are willing to release the stress by drinking coffee, because the caffeine can make people feel excited. However, according to the study, drinking more than three cups of coffee a day will result in the increased risk of developing glaucoma, which can lead to vision loss or blindness, because the caffeine can increase pressure of our eyeball, even though the caffeine have many benefits to our health. As a matter of the fact, the medical experts suggest individual drink certain coffee instead to much. Of course, just one simple study cannot say anything and is unconvinced. However, too much coffee with caffeine can cause the glaucoma, and if you have got the glaucoma, you should know that there will be high risk to become blind. Taking into your health and eyes, you had better not drink coffee too much.

    It did sound crazy, yet it is true. Coffee has been known to be problematic. Some research says vision loss or blindness might be caused by heavy drinking of caffeinated coffee. Because it increases the pressure within the eyeball which can cause glaucoma. According to the new study, drinking more than three cups of coffee per day any increase the risk of developing glaucoma, which can lead to vision loss or blindness. Coffee is a stimulant, that's why some experts even call it drug. If you have the habit of drinking coffee one cup after another to perk us up, I am too, you have to control it. Reduce our coffee drinks gradually from 5 cups to 2 cups, from double caffeinated to half-decaf to total decaf. It is not easy, yet we have to insist. Hope we could quit coffee soon!
