Home Remedies Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a very serious disease that affects the optic nerve. The pressure inside the eye rises, damaging the nerve and causing vision loss and blindness. People more than 65 years of age are at risk and people with diabetes as well. See below our most popular home remedies glaucoma.


This condition produces no symptoms. Therefore, people who suffer glaucoma do not find out until it’s very advanced.
Glaucoma has probably many causes. Some scientists claim it is related to stress, poor nutrition and high blood pressure. Collagen deficiency has been linked to glaucoma.


List of Home Remedies for Glaucoma:

  • Take 50 mg. of Rutin 3 times a day. This bioflavonoid reduces pain and pressure inside the eye.


  • Vitamin A and carotenoid are needed to keep healthy eyes and to improve night vision.


  • Eat spinach and take Lutein or spinach extract because they contains carotenoid needed for retina and eye tissue and sometimes reverses many eye conditions.


  • Eyebright herb in drops is excellent for glaucoma. This plant can be use internally and is much more effective than commercial eye drops and safer.
  • Take Ginkgo Biloba because it increases the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the eye and it clears toxins. Mix it with zinc sulfate to slow down progressive vision loss.


  • Cayenne is an anti inflammatory for the mucus membranes. Use very small amounts, well diluted with water or in eye drop form. It increases blood flow to the eye.


  • Take Vitamin E. It removes particles from the eye lens.


  • Bilberry strengthens and protects veins and blood vessels, protects the retina, reduces pressure in glaucoma and can stop the growth of cataracts.
  • Use Coleus dropped directly into the eye to increase blood flow to the eye and decrease intraocular pressure.


  • Use Fennel. This plant although used in the kitchen for salads is also a very good herb for vision problems. When snakes shed their skin they are temporarily blinded and eat fennel to restore their sight. It can be eaten raw or made as a tea and the tea can be used as an eyewash.


  • Jaborandi is a herb that grows in the rain forest. It’s been used for about 120 years in patients with glaucoma because it contains pilocarpine.


  • Although we do not recommend it, many studies have shown that marijuana can help reduce intraocular pressure but it is unknown how marijuana achieves this result.

    I know someone who had 3 of the 4 early signs of glaucoma in their 20s! The optometrist virtually had to be forced to give this person a pressure test when it was requested – however, once insisted, the test was done and the optometrist did, at least, offer an apology.

    The diet was improved – clean, organic food with no sugar; lots of spinach (not overdone as this is a goitrogen – so be careful if thyroid issues present & at least wilt the spinach rather than eat raw in that case); eats copious amounts of turmeric; has managed stress; and the main thing is that this person smokes marijuana (not heavily) and claims this seems to be what is keeping things under control. Eye exercises also helped.

  • Beverly Francis

    What about the juice from hibiscus flower; Isn’t that good for glaucoma too?

  • Prahlada

    Hi, as far as Coleus forskohlii goes I have also read up a lot about it and how wonderful it is. BUT the problem is it is very difficult to find. Gaia has a tincture of it and thats about it. I was hoping to get my hands on some of the actual herb itself but both frontier herbs and starwest-botanicals does not carry it in any form.

    Also I was wondering in what form should it be used as eyedrops? Also how many drops, and how often should it be applied directly to the eye?


    p.s. as per my research these other herbs are good to:

    Hawthorn berries

      Hello, I read your comment .their has been some cures of glaucoma taking 30,000 milligrams of vitamin ” C ” daily.
      I am 44 yrs of age and have glaucoma and
      nothing seems to be helping to keep my pressures down . where can I find that much vitamin C tablets thank you ?
      and how much do I take because if one pill is 1000 I would have to take 30,000 ?

      • Janice

        You may want to consider lipsomal vitamin C. You can get the dosages you want without taking so many pills lol. If you don’t want lipsomal vitamin get the powder. FYI that would be 30 pills not 30,000 lol.
