How Exercising Helps Your Eyes

Did you know that your daily gym workout is also benefiting your eyes? It’s true. Studies have found that by exercising, you reduce the risk of cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration. Although exercising may not directly affect your eye sight, it helps with other health issues like diabetes, which can possibly damage the blood vessels in your retina. High blood pressure also leads to eye disease, which is another reason why your workouts help!

However, if you’re not a gym person, that’s okay. Here are some easy tips you can do to improve your eye conditions at home:

  • Going for a walk or jog helps decrease the risk of cataracts.
  • Low-impact exercises like Yoga or Pilates helps reduce eye pressure in young adults with glaucoma.

Every little bit helps!
