There is evidence that cinnamon upregulates neurotrophic factors, which are responsible for the growth and development of neurons. Cinnamon has shown benefits for Alzheimer's Disease, and if one can extrapolate, may help to reduce neurodegeneration elsewhere including the optic nerve.

Furthermore, it appears that amyloid-beta deposition, a factor in Alzheimer's Disease, is also involved in the destruction of retinal ganglion cells, which is further evidence that cinnamon could be of benefit for glaucoma.

Cinnulin PF is a patented, water extract of Cinnamon (species Cinnamomum burmannii) that contains Type-A polymers. Cinnulin PF is a proprietary product of Integrity Nutraceuticals International.

Cinnamon, one of the world's favorite spices, is a medicinal herb with more than 4,000 years of traditional use. Recent research has revealed that constituents in cinnamon bark called procyanidin Type-A polymers help maintain the body's ability to metabolize glucose in a healthy way.

Cinnamon Bark has been used traditionally as a culinary spice and to support proper digestion. It is know to possess a number of bioactive constituents that exhibit free radical neutralizing activity; other studies suggest that Cinnamon components may support balanced immune system and inflammatory responses.

It is also becoming more well known that cinnamon helps control blood sugar. Just be careful of the dosages and regularity of use because it can be a little rough on the liver.

I have read that Alzheimers is sometimes referred to as "diabetes of the brain".  It may all be related.
Here are some links.

The kind of cinnamon that's effective is cassia cinnamon not Ceylon cinnamon (which does not contain the active ingredient).   Cassia cinnamon is the strongly aromatic kind that's normally sold in grocery stores (and it's cheaper than the Ceylon cinnamon).  The risk comes from the fact that cassia cinnamon contains coumarin, which can be toxic to the liver in high doses.

In studies of the effect of cinnamon on blood glucose, the most effective, long-term response was from consuming 1 gram per day.  HIgher (3 and 6 gram) doses cause more rapid short-term responses, but long-term were not as effective as the 1 gram dose.  The 1 gram dose is equivalent to a little less than 1/2 teaspoon.  (I weighed half a teaspoon of cinnamon and it was about 1.28 grams.)

In this study, which lasted 3 months, even the higher 3 and 6 gram amounts didn't cause any liver problems, so half a teaspoon would probably be okay, but just to play safe you could always take a water-soluble extract, which contains the active ingredient without the coumarin, because coumarin is lipid-soluble, not water-soluble, so the coumarin remains behind when the water-soluble components are extracted from the bark.  I take the aqueous extract in a supplement.  That way I can get enough of the active ingredient without having to worry about any potential toxicity.  But I also occasionally add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to my oatmeal.

The studies with the spice itself show that 1 gram per day works better than 3 or 6 grams long-term, but that's the spice.  With the supplement, you're getting about half a gram, but it's the aqueous extract without the coumarin, which is evidently more potent than a half gram of the spice.
