    Well, as you can see, it is true that soemtimes crying could give rise to higher eye pressure, because as you can see, when we try to cry, we would shed tears with the help of higher eye pressure otherwise these tears would not get out of our eyes. And according to a lot of cases, this explanation is true. So, if you have got glaucoma, you should try to avoid crying because higher eye pressure would make your situation worse.
