How Exercising Can Help Your Vision

Most people exercise for looks. Everyone seeks that perfect body, the smallest waist, or the biggest biceps. But did you know that being active also has incredible benefits for your eye health? You do not need to spend long hours at the gym or sacrifice your time off. Simply spend thirty minutes a day doing some form of cardiovascular activity, and your eyes will thank you. Keep reading to learn with Splash Tears, the best over-the-counter eye drops, why and how cardio can benefit your eyes.


Glaucoma patients can reap many benefits from working out. The main one being that it lowers intraocular pressure. Glaucoma is a condition in which the optic nerve is damaged by intraocular pressure (fluid pressure inside the eyes), causing you to lose, have blurred, or spotted vision. So, by working out, you can decrease that pressure, either preventing glaucoma or mitigating the current symptoms if you already suffer from it. Give it a go! Spend thirty minutes daily doing a low-impact cardiovascular activity such as brisk walking, jogging, or jump rope.


People with diabetes are at a very high risk of losing their sight. So, if you suffer from diabetes, protect your vision by remaining active. Diabetic retinopathy is a complication that causes damage to the blood vessels in the retina. It is a disease not to be taken lightly as it can leave you blind. So, protect your general health and eyes with a quick workout once a day. 

Macular Degeneration:

The macula is the part of the retina in charge of our central vision. AMD often affects people over 50 but can be suffered by anyone, even genetically. MD or AMD causes central vision loss in its patients. Approximately fifteen million people suffer from AMD in the USA, with more than 1.7 million having advanced macular degeneration. So with numbers this high, why not do preventive work now? Here are some alternative forms of cardio that you can implement in your daily life to protect your eyes from AMD. Protect your eyes now so you can enjoy the beauty of life for as long as you can.

What to do:

To live long and be healthy, one must live consciously and honestly. Be brutally honest with yourself. Do you usually come home from work, grab a soda and some snack, and sit around for hours on your phone? When was the last time you moved your body? Are you drinking enough water? Have you been outdoors at all this week? All these things have severe repercussions for your eye and general health. So choose self-love by pushing yourself a little harder and working out at least thirty minutes four times a week. It may be hard at first, but eventually, you’ll build a healthy habit and one that you can pass on to your children if you have any.
