As the weather warms up, questions may arise about whether exercise is safe for those with Retinal conditions

By May 18, 2021 No Comments

As the weather warms up and people are spending more time out of doors, questions may arise about whether exercise is safe for those with Retinal conditions. While most exercise is safe when the strength of the Retina is uncertain, sports that involve the potential for blows to the head or whiplash, like kickboxing or contact martial arts, should be avoided. When resuming physical activity after Retinal surgery, one should not engage in strenuous exercise, and swimming should be restricted for 2 weeks. Swimming is also restricted immediately after certain injections to treat Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). For those who have undergone Retinal surgery with a gas bubble, flying, high altitudes, and scuba diving are off limits. In general, exercise is encouraged in those with Retinal disease. It benefits overall health, and may even improve eye health, as it helps lower important health indicators like high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
