I found this article on the topic — https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.sciencefocus.com/news/living-in-areas-of-high-air-pollution-linked-to-glaucoma-risk/amp/

Something to do with constriction of blood vessels causing inflammation of the nervous system. Needs to be studied on a global scale, especially in places with high pollution levels ...
