Glaucoma = aging of optic nerve (connecting retina to brain).
Glaucoma leads to vision loss and blindness.  Current screening measures pressure in eye from fluid buildup. 12/4/05  www.boston.com/magazine

5/2006 www.lef.org notes that age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) has 2 major types, wet or dry.  The wet (exudative) condition may be caused by abnormal blood vessels growing across and under the macula leading to scar tissue, which damages/destroys the macula, leading to blindness. 
In the dry (atrophic) condition, yellow deposits (drusen) accumulate underneath retina, causing macula to thin and lose function, resulting in blindness. 
 

Causes

 
Herpes Simplex 1 from latent chicken pox virus may adversely affect the eyes. www.coldcure.com/html/herpes.html   herpes.htm 
 
Surgery (such as Lasik) or eye cuts may trigger/precipitate temporary or permanent dry eyes. 5/1/2007 www.wsj.org

A daily dose of 6 mg lutein + zeaxanthin, 500 mg vitamin C, 400 mg vitamin E, 15 mg beta carotene + 80 mg zinc seems to protect macular degeneration or Age related MD per 3/2/04 Wall St Journal www.wsj.com - aches@wsj.com - (Carotenoid xanthophylls) lutein (from marigold flowers, spinach, kale) + zeaxanthin are beneficial for most all eye diseases (especially wet macular degeneration and cataracts) per 4/2007 and 2005 collectors edition of Life Extension. The eye converts lutein into bioavailable structure, meso-zeaxanthin. 
Xanthophylls serve as natural sunscreens in plants, eyes, skin, plus may protect the veins and arteries from clogging.
Zeaxanthin is found in yellow corn, orange peaches, honeydew, mangoes, oranges, and green/orange peppers. 
Lutein can be found in broccoli, asparagus, yellow corn, squash, kiwi, pumpkin and peas.  Egg yolks contain both.
(Some organic poultry breeders use feed to increase this benefit.) - www.lef.org

A natural plant compound, an anthocyanin called cyanidin 3-glucoside, or C3G, can accelerate the regeneration of rhodopsin, potentially restoring dim-light visual sensitivity.59,60 C3G, derived from natural dark berries, is therefore a promising addition to any supplement meant to  age-related vision changes (AMD)"

Natural (rather than synthetic) astaxanthin - http://www.stazen.com/Benefits-of-Natural-Astaxanthin.html Haematococcus algae are rich in astaxanthin.
Natural astaxanthin may help with prevention of arthritis, gastritis, sunburn, joint, muscle and eye fatigue, macular degeneration, erythema plus bladder cancer.   http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20101201005694/en/Natural-Astaxanthin-Praised-Dr.-Joseph-Mercola-Broad   
Natural "Astaxanthin is a yellow to pink plant pigment (color) in the carotenoid family. Only plants can produce carotenoids, but in the human diet, the major sources of astaxanthin are salmon, trout, and shrimp. These creatures accumulate astaxanthin from krill, which absorbs astaxanthin with the consumption of microalgae (tiny water plants). Astaxanthin from (pink sea fish, black currants and) microalgae (Haematococcus pluvial - the richest natural source of this beneficial compound) has been shown to protect the cells of the eye from oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Astaxanthin is able to attach itself to the cell membranes where free radicals attack first, and protect the cell and its fatty acids from free radical oxidation (destruction). Astaxanthin is particularly effective at quenching oxygen-based free radicals found in high numbers in eye tissues. Its antioxidant activity is equal to or greater than vitamin E – the standard marker for antioxidants. It has also been found to reduce inflammation and increase blood flow—both good things for preserving macular health." http://www.terrytalksnutrition.com/weekly-articles/2010/05-28/
"Natural astaxanthin is by far the strongest of (recent) human discovery of nature’s antioxidants...Astaxanthin (astaxanthin in Hong Kong and Taiwan is also known as shrimp red pigment) is a red pigment, you can assign (attribute the source of) ornamental fish, salmon, shrimp and Flamingo Pink color (and food). Astaxanthin is kind of a carrot group...of products, β-carotene, lutein, canthaxanthin, lycopene."

Smoking, blue and ultraviolet light plus cigarette smoke harm vision.  AMD (age related macula degeneration) can be reversed/slowed with omega 3 oils, lutein, and zeaxanthin (which can be added to laying hen/chicken feed).  Choline (which can help retain/improve memory) can also be added to poultry feed.  The resulting egg yolks can contribute to both vision and memory of infant to senior citizen. http://www.countryhen.com/library.php
Eggs provide 3x more blood circulating lutein than spinach or standard supplementation.

Vitamins A, C, and E + zinc may help ward off the formation of drusen.  The fruit/vegetable colorful carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin may help guard against ARMD.  Lutein and zeaxanthin are the only carotenoids found in the eye lens and macula.  They are antioxidants which absorb the near-to-UV blue light potentially damaging to retina and macula.
Ginkgo biloba may improve vision in the dry form of ARMD.  High homocysteine may contribute to ARMD risk.

Evans, Michael - The Light - autobiography - http://jerusalemprayerteam.org/email/2011/0705.htm - "Eyes...act as a camera to reflect and focus light and convert it into electrical signals which the brain translates into images. The eyes of Jesus were smiling. I'd never before seen that in a man's eyes. I had only seen rabid anger until my encounter with Jesus. I know His eyes were not a single color, not brown, or blue, or green. Every color in the rainbow was in His eyes which were like magnets drawing me into their depths. That night my life was radically transformed. I was healed of a stomach ulcer, a speech impediment, delivered from all my fears, and called to do what I am now doing. It seemed as if I could see through the eyes of Jesus into eternality."

"Glaucoma and cataracts...are not necessarily inherited. 
Cataracts are due to poor circulation, I believe, more than anything else. We're not really sure what causes it, but we do know that a lack of oxygen supply to the lens in the eye will cause cataracts. Some are spots, some are streaks, some are like dust on the cornea, some are just milky; there are all types. Pray that the spot in the eye will be removed. Command the spirit of inheritance to come out.
A cataract is not a growth. The lens in the eye where the cataract is formed is shaped like a magnifying lens. It is thick in the middle and thin on the edges. It is composed of layer after layer of skin, similar to an onion. What happens is these layers start drying out in different areas, and this causes a spot. So when the light comes through, when we look into the eye, we see a black spot in there. It is not a growth; it is not cancerous. It is just a change or drying out of the tissue. Pray that the tissue will be restored to normal and the blood supply to the eye will be replenished.
Glaucoma is an increase of pressure in the eye. The fluids in the eye are constantly being replaced and drained out. The canals are slim around the outer area of the iris where the fluids drain out of the eye, and if these canals become clogged, then the drainage slows down and the pressure builds up. It's like blowing air into a balloon.
Command the canals to be opened
, command the spirit of inheritance to come out, and command the pressure to be relieved and go down to normal, in Jesus' name.

job/17-5 - KJV - He that (deceives/denounces) speaketh flattery (for a reward/personal gain, such as Judas did regarding Jesus) to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail.  (Thus we need to recognize, repent, replace and receive in Jesus name.)
 
Nash, Daniel - https://www.hopefaithprayer.com/prayernew/prevailing-prince-prayer-daniel-nash/ - "Nash was struck with a serious case of inflamed eyes. For several weeks he had to be kept in a dark room where he could neither read nor write. During this time 'he gave himself up almost entirely to prayer. He had a terrible overhauling of his whole Christian experience; as soon as he was able to see, with a double black veil before his face, he sallied forth to labor for souls.'”
 

Bill Wiese author of 23 Minutes in Hell, says that we must be careful to guard our hearts from temptation.
The Bible shows us that Satan primarily uses the eyes as a portal to man's soul, but God primarily uses the ears.
What exactly does that mean for all of us? Wiese explains from Scripture in this video:
