Hello! I´m Honassys Rocha, Clinica do Olho Medical Director. Today we´ll talk about glaucoma and physical activity. Ana Paula Alves asked us through YouTube: I would like to know if a person with glaucoma can workout. I´m already exercising for a few days. Sometimes I have headache. Is there something in common? God bless you and your team. Thank you very much for your kind words and for the motivation. Indeed your doubt is very frequent among glaucoma patients. Some people think that resting helpful, while glaucoma patient ideal is to exercise normally Moreover I highly recommend the person diagnosed of glaucoma to exercise regularly. Preferably early morning or late afternoon. With few clothes on, witch benefits with D Vitamin synthesis. We should remember that the sun is our biggest and free source. Physical activity for glaucoma patients also benefits blood pressure control and we know that one of the risk factors for a glaucoma patient is high blood pressure. So if there is a pressure control, witch helps entire body circulation, I particularly believe it also helps ocular region circulation. Some time ago I prepared a “Frequently Asked Questions” about physical activity and glaucoma, and we will leave the link about myths and truths about glaucoma. Ana Paula also asked about headache. Usually headache is not related to glaucoma. For the most part glaucoma has no symptoms, but there are people who have closed-angle glaucoma. Sometime this person who has closed-angle glaucoma diagnosis can have little pain in the eye region. It can be confused with headache and this pain caused by closed-angle glaucoma usually happens at night. Sometimes people can have a symptom like when they look to the light they feel like there are seeing a light decomposition. A distorted view like halo around the light. But usually a person who has glaucoma has no symptom and this headache must be glasses need. So I recommend you to review your glasses as well. If you have any questions, you can post it on our site: clinicadoolho.com.br I´ll be ready to answer it. Vision is the most important human being sense. Best regards and see you next video.
