Question:
My eye pressure is six in one eye after surgery. I was told there is nothing I can do to raise the pressure. Is this true?

Answer:
It depends on why your pressure is six. Sometimes the pressure is low from a leak in the wall of the eye. This can be repaired. At other times, the eye is producing too little fluid and medications or surgery can enhance aqueous production.
