Why does eye pressure increase?

An increase in eye pressure is a result of several factors which can be summarised as mechanisms that prevent intraocular fluid (aqueous humour) from being removed properly through the normal channel. This can be mild and chronic—chronic glaucoma—or sudden, due to other processes. The ophthalmologist has to examine the patient urgently, especially in the event of acute forms.
