Intake of fennel may have a potential and positive effect in reduced ocular hypertension, the early onset of glaucoma, some scientists suggested.
Ocular hypertension is a condition characterized by elevated fluid pressure inside the eye (intraocular pressure), in most case, without inducing optic nerve damage or visual field loss.
Normal eye pressure is in ranges between 10-21 mm Hg. Eye pressure over 21mm Hg is considered as ocular hypertension.
People with ocular hypertension do not develop peripheral vision and ocular disease. However, the condition may consider as risk factor in early onset of glaucoma.
Medication such as bisphosphonate, cyclosporine, tacrolimus,…. and minocycline used for treatment for osteoporosis, erectile dysfunction and prostate conditions may increase pressure in the ocular.
The Glaucoma Research Foundation, patients with ocular hypertension may not experience any symptoms that affect the inner eye structure or vision abnormality, however untreated ocular hypertension may facilitate glaucoma, a multi-factorial, complex eye disease with specific characteristics such as optic nerve damage and visual field loss.
The herb or foot has been used in traditional and herbal medicine as warming, carminative, antispasmodic, antidepressant agent and to stimulate the appetite, ease indigestion, soothe coughing, reduce intestinal spasms, to regulate the menstrual cycle and relieve PMS,…
In the evaluation of the effect of aqueous extract isolated from Foeniculum vulgare in experimental models of glaucoma, researchers at the Delhi Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences & Research found that application of aqueous seed extract of Foeniculum vulgare exerted a significant activities in reduced the intraocular pressure of tested model by 17.49, 21.16 and 22.03%.
In normotensive rabbits, application of the same doses induced insignificant change of fluid pressure.
Aqueous extract of Foeniculum vulgare possesses significant oculohypotensive activity similar those of timolol, a conventional medicine used as eye drop to treat increased pressure inside the eye such as in ocular hypertension and glaucoma.
The study re confirmed the use of Fennel seeds to benefit vision in traditional herbal medicine and the Romans viewed the fennel plant as the herb of eyesight.
