Did You Know?

Did you know that you could be going blind and not even know it? That's what glaucoma does. It sneaks up on you very slowly over time. It's a leading cause of blindness in all adults over 60. But some people are especially at risk. If you're Black and over 40, you're up to five times more likely to get glaucoma. Or if you have a family history of glaucoma, you're also at high risk. Glaucoma can't be cured, but it can be controlled and the risk of blindness reduced-if glaucoma is detected and treated in time. That's why it's so important for people with an increased risk to have regular eye exams. Seattle glaucoma specialist, Howard Barnebey, MD is one of a very small group of local eye doctors dedicated to glaucoma and helping patients with this terrible eye disease.

Exercise and How it can Positively Impact Your IOP

Exercise and How it can Positively Impact Your IOP

Recent studies suggest that exercise can help to alleviate some eye pressure, which can potentially help if you have glaucoma. Now you might be thinking, “well, how much do I need to work out to get results?” The great thing is, you don't need to work out rigorously to see results.

Studies show that you can lower your Intraocular Pressure (IOP) by doing exercises that raise your pulse only by 20%. You can raise your pulse by 20% by simply taking a 20-minute walk four times a week. Regular exercise might be helpful in preventing vision loss from glaucoma, but only an eye doctor can accurately assess your situation and tell you if exercise is helping you.

There are some forms of glaucoma, such as pigmentary glaucoma, that exercises do not have a positive effect on. In certain forms of glaucoma vigorous exercise can actually cause an increase in Intraocular Pressure.

While exercise can have benefits in lowering your Intraocular Pressure, you should consult with an eye care physician to know if it is the right decision for you. Exercise is great for your overall health, but cannot be treated as a substitute for glaucoma medication designed to lower your IOP.
