Do People With Glaucoma Have To Change The Way They Live?Tuesday, March 27, 2012 - 21:56
As a rule, no. People with glaucoma can continue to read, do fine detail work, and use their eyes the way they always have.
Some things you can do to help are:
- Have your blood pressure checked regularly
- Quit smoking
- Get regular exercise
However, a person with glaucoma should avoid activities such as yoga, which may require you to stand on your head. This can raise eye pressure.
