    Yes. i read an article. It said that some evidence suggesting that aerobic exercise can reduce eye pressure on its own, thus to give a positive impact on other glaucoma risk factors. Besides, i also read another article at livestrong.com, it wrote that Regular exercise can reduce intraocular eye pressure in open-angle glaucoma. Besides, regularly eye exercise can also improve blood flow to the retina and optic nerve.

    It is said that regualr eye exercises can help reduce eye pressure in open-angle glaucoma but it have no effect on people who have closed-angle glaucoma. Sometimes, eye exercises can even increase eye pressure in some people. Anyway, you should consult your doctor who will advise you what to do and how to do with your high eye pressure. Some people find that eye exercises can help them lower eye pressure as long as they keep doing eye exercises.
