To test whether there is a relationship between handedness and the intraocular pressure and there is a lateralization in the intraocular pressure, the intraocular pressures of the right- and left-eyes were compared in right- and left-handed students. The intraocular pressures were higher in the right-eye than in the left-eye in men, right-handers, and right-eyed subjects; there was no right-left difference in females, left-handers, left-eyed, and both-eyed subjects. The intraocular pressure of right- and left-eyes was higher in left-handers than right-handers. And there were significant negative correlations between hand preference and the intraocular pressure of both right- and left-eyes. We have concluded that the dominant eye has higher intraocular pressure compared to the nondominant one, and there is a relationship between hand preference and the intraocular pressure.
