Tight neckties linked to glaucoma

Study: Restrictive collars raise blood pressure in the eye

RESEARCH REPORTED in the British Journal of Ophthalmology on Tuesday showed that a tight necktie raises blood pressure in the eye, which is a leading risk factor in the illness that can lead to damage to the optic nerve and loss of vision.
“A tight necktie increases IOP (intraocular pressure) in both normal subjects and glaucoma patients and could affect the diagnosis and management of glaucoma,” said Dr. Robert Ritch of the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary.

Everyone suffers for their Fashion style be it corsets, peircings or tatts, so this isn't really new and i'm not surprised that it could cause Glaucoma.

I do find neckties quite sexy on some men.

Actually, on second thoughts, why would anyone wear a necktie to the point of "slight discomfort"? Only a fool, i guess, considering there's no need to.

Yeah, I agree... I like wearing neckties, and given how libertine my lifestyle is in terms of decadent partying, I'm quite sure that my tie is the least of my worries...

Not enough men were ties on social occasions, which is a damn shame!
