Answer

Thanks for your Question

 

 

You have high intraocular pressure in right eye. Your eye doctor should have full eye examination to know what is the cause of it.

This is called glaucoma if there is some sort of damage to the optic nerve. Reading or near tasks is not a risk factor for glaucoma.
