Multiple studies where at least two are double-blind and placebo controlled

Uncontrolled or observational studies only
Level of Evidence

Notes
grade-b - Very High See all 3 studies
Despite the increase in ocular blood flow associated with repeated dosing of ginkgo biloba, there does not appear to be a significant modification of intraocular blood pressure in persons with normal IOP.
grade-c Minor Very High See 2 studies
Eyedrops containing forskolin seem effective in reducing intraocular pressure (IOP), and while it seems effective orally those studies are currently confounded with the inclusion of other nutrients (and thus omitted from the HEM).
grade-c Minor - See study
Oral supplementation of melatonin (500mcg) is able to reduce intraocular pressure in otherwise healthy persons
