Dear Anon,

Thank you for visiting the EmpowHER community and sharing your question.

I haven't come across a whole lot of research to support or deny your question. From what I have found, "Is sex safe? From a glaucoma point of view, in a word yes - just don't hang head down for prolonged periods!"

Here is an article about this topic 

This would be a good question to discuss with your physician or Ophthalmologist.
