Does working a lot by computer increase the eye pressure?

Dear experts,
Is there any study showing that computer work causes increased eye pressure, a symptom representative of Glaucoma?
I have personally talked with several eye doctors, but they told me that it had not been proven so far. So, I am seeking such new researchers in this regard.
Best regards,

Perhaps the question could be: "Does slight convergence increase IOP (vs. screen time)?"

In my knowledge, there is no correlation between scree time and the increase of intra ocular pressure. But screen time can give the eye strain symptoms that also cause eye discomfort.

Long screen time may cause eye strain symptoms that some people may "feel" like heavy eyes or "pressure in the eyes" (also called asthenopia), but never shown to significantly alter intraocular pressure or cause glaucoma.

I agree , computing cause eye strain , asthenopia , DED , but there’s no correllation between IOP increase and working a lot with computer.

There is no relation between computer screen work and the eye pressure.

In literature and most population based survey, no correlation between intraocular pressure and computer use has been reported neither has it been established that there is increased risk of intraocular pressure elevation with use of computer. However, more study is needed to prove or dispute this claim.

Not at all. Computer over usage can only cause eye strain like irritation, watering, headache and discomfort but never rise our Intra ocular pressure.
