If you have the glaucoma, you'd better protect the eyes through the medical care and treat the eyes carefully.

    Generally speaking, glaucoma is a condition of the eye that occurs as a result of your eye pressure. And in common, drinking wine or other alcoholic beverages does not appear to increase your risk for having glaucoma damage. On the contrary, alcohol may reduce your eye pressure for a small period of time. So, in long term, it can not be helpful. Anyway, you should know that wine and other forms of alcohol will only provide a periodic reduction.
