Ocular Hypertension is an increase in the pressure inside your eyes above the normal range with no detectable change in vision or damage to the eyes. It has no noticeable signs or symptoms. People with ocular hypertension can develop glaucoma, so it is important to have regular examinations to monitor this. An elevated eye pressure can be determined at your routine yearly eye exams. Ocular hypertension can occur in people of all ages, but it is more common in African Americans, people over 40 years of age, and those with a family history of ocular hypertension and/or glaucoma. Careful monitoring and treatment (if necessary) can decrease the risk of damage to your eyes.
