Can strenuous exercises increase the pressure to my eyes ?

Hi doc, Can strenuous exercises such as weight training , jogging, brisk walking and swimming increase the pressure to my eyes? Will it worsen my glaucoma condition? My pressure is 10 for both eyes due to regular eyedrops. I am 63 years old. I was told I have advanced glaucoma. Thanks, Ken

Hi,Ken,
Welcome to health care magic family.\,
If your Glaucoma is fully under control then there is no problem doing some strenuous exercise.
As your pressure in both eyes is 10 i.e. it is normal.
Ok and bye.

I have had a head ache more like pressure behind my eyes for three weeks straight. I 40 years old male 155 pounds. I exercise often. I have seen my GP who ordered a x-ray of my sinus cavity ,it came back clean with no problems. I have also seen an eye doctor today who looked at my optic nerve and reported all is well there. Any advice?

1.) I had undergone LASEK surgery three years back, but my number has been increasing since then. It is currently -4 in my my right eye and -3.50 in my left eye. I have been told that my cornea is not as thick as it should be (460) to undergo laser surgery again. I have been prescribed FML (Fluorometholone opthalmic suspension) and Nepalact (Nepafenac opthalmic suspension) drops twice a day for three months as the doctor mentioned some haze and wants to find out why the number has been increasing. Are these drops safe? 2.) For the last month, I have also been experiencing a floater in my right eye which is very distracting. Are there any eye exercises to get rid of it? 3.) What can I do to reduce my number? Are there any eye exercises for this? Is there any other laser treatment I can undergo?

My 4 month old litt;e baby boy has an eye infection since birth. He has a green discharge from the eye and constant watering of the eye which is making the skin ont he side of his face very red and sore. He has had two courses of eye drops (antibiotics) which made no difference at all. Lately I noticed that the second eye is becoming infected. I am currently just washing it with sterile water and cotten wool as I have been from birth but still no improvement. Should I see the dr again?

I have angioedema, however, the redness, itching and discomfort I have been experiencing for the past week is growing worse and is only located on the outsides of both underarms. I take doxepin for the angioedema. I have been using three new prescription eye drops for cataract pre/post op: 1. Gatifloxacin 2. Lotemax and 3. Prolensa (my next op is 6/30/14 for my right eye). This new condition only began after my first cataract surgery on 6/16/14 and kept me awake most of last night. I am using neosporone on both sites. Thank you for any information you might offer. CW
