Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
You are precisely correct. Marijuana can lower intraocular pressure, but the effect is quite transitory and the effect is not significant. In very rare cases it could be added to a medical regimen to induce an additional IOP-lowering effect if surgery were not even lowering pressure enough. However, this situation would be quite uncommon. Because there are so many effective IOP-lowering drops on the market that have fewer side effects, medical marijuana becomes nearly irrelevant.
