After diving into the complex world of eye health, I've learned that high eye pressure and cataracts have an interesting relationship. High eye pressure, also known as ocular hypertension, doesn't cause cataracts directly but can lead to conditions that do. You see, high eye pressure can trigger glaucoma, which damages the optic nerve and potentially leads to cataracts. It's a bit of a domino effect. So, while not directly linked, managing your eye pressure is crucial in preventing long-term problems like cataracts.
