r u diabetic ? if not ..keep any eye on your exercise routine and eating habits so you dont get diabeties and all will stay fine inshALLAH..
you said your IOP stays high ? didnt tell exactly how high ?? did you get it checked ?
6 monthly - annual eye checkup along with IOP monitoring is recommended in your case.
remember your eye glasses number or your work routine has no effect on the general health or IOP

If you have a strong family history of Glaucoma and your IOP of 19 is a bit high as your CCT is also on higher side giving low reading of IOP than actually it is so get your Visual fields tested 30-2 along with OCT preferably with ganglion cell analysis as at present monitoring of Glaucoma is more imp for you. These two base line investigations are must for Glaucoma and don't worry about diabetic eye damage as long as your blood sugar is with in normal limits
