Retinal Problems and Weight Lifting
HI to all
I had pre operative check ups and findings were-
1-Retina is thinner compared to what it should be.Doctor said its thin by birth Both eye has same thin retina.Because of which i cannot get 20/20 vision ever.I would be unable to read last 2-3 lines with such a retina.It simply means retinal detachment risk is greater.
2-Vitreous degeneration is present.Which means i m at greater risk for retina detachment.However retina specialist told that retina is thin but from birth, retina has not been detached and its a good thing.But i am advised to check retina quarterly.
3-Im myopic.Means my eyes axial length is larger.This is also associated with retinal detachment.
Im advised not to do heavy lifting and give as less stress to body as possible and avoiding strenuous activities.
This means i will be compelled to put a big cross on my gym which i was doing for past 2 years including heavy weight lifting in the gym.
Anyone here has any of these issues with retina ? need their opinion and experiences as i want to start light weight exercises.
Really need to be a ROCK to take the pain!
