Is increasing eye pressure related to lupus? I have to see an ophthalmologist for a consult.

I think I read something about the possible correlation....

I do have glaucoma. Mine is primary open angle type. The drains are open but either I make too much fluid inside my eye or the drain doesn't function right.
I get my eyes checked every six months and use drops in both eyes once a day. I have very mild damage and my pressure is regular now.

I've never read that as a correlation. Doesn't really matter, if you have increased pressure, it certainly needs to be addressed!
