Answer
Dear Subhash,

The eye pressure may be normal for you. For an exact, we also need to your corneal thickness or pachymetry readings.
Sometimes, those having thick corneas and high eye pressure are false positive for high IOP.
Eye pressure can only reduce with medication, only for those that need it.Hence, speak to your treating eye specialist for the same.
Kind regards,
Dr Shroff
