Study: Coffee Could Increase Glaucoma Risk
A new study suggests drinking at least three cups of coffee a day could increase your risk of glaucoma.
Researchers found your risk of getting a certain type of glaucoma, called exfoliation glaucoma, goes up 66 percent if you drink more than three cups of caffeinated coffee a day. The same result was not found in other caffeinated beverages, such as soda and tea.
The lead researcher said the results still need to be confirmed through more studies.
