i have a three year old son ,who has glaucoma since birth, no vision in left eye ,after surgery @9months got infection
and in the right  eye he has had a drainage system done and several needlin procedure to lower his pressure from 14months onwards and is still undergoing procdures and recently had laser treatment done as well as following eye drops daily (pilocarpine, trusopt, timoptol, xhaltan, and pilogel) .

his pressure went down from 45 to 15-11 for two weeks and than suddenly shot up to 50 in 5days when next checkup, since then i have started codliver oil and reduced caffine(coke)  and after 3weeks pressure was 35 before laser and after 5days after laser it is 42 with all above drops plus dexmethsone and chronphenical

Diet makes no difference!! Consult with your doctor. Sometimes inflammation will cause the pressure to go up and sometimes the treatment (the dexamethasone) will cause the pressure to go up. Good luck.
