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

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.
