Do You Have Glaucoma?

This disease threatens your vision if left untreated and unmanaged, which is caused by a build up of pressure in the eyeball.
But did you know that people with glaucoma are benefited with exercise and they are encouraged to exercise as well?

According to BMC Opthalmology, a study has found out that exercise could take some pressure off.
Glaucoma patients' eye pressures were checked before and after 10 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise and all groups experienced a drop in pressure after working out.

However, the study warned that people with pigmentary, congenital or juvenile glaucoma should exercise with caution.
