Coffee Intake and Glaucoma Risk

Recent research indicates that for people who have relatively high eye pressure, caffeine intake may contribute to a higher incidence of glaucoma. This does not mean that coffee causes glaucoma.

We therefore advise that you limit your intake of coffee to no more than a couple of cups a day, if we have indicated that your eye pressure readings are on the high side of normal.
