How Bulking Up May Damage Your Eyesight

February 07, 2012

Most forms of all-around fitness involve some kind of weightlifting. Whether you have an interest in lifting to bulk up or simply to tone your body, experts say that it’s a valuable part of exercising. Regardless of where your interests lie, we all lift weights for the same reason: to improve our body shape and overall health. It might surprise you to learn that lifting weights can also affect your body in a negative way. Studies have shown that individuals who lift weights are at a higher risk of glaucoma, an eye disease which can lead to permanent blindness.

What our customers are saying:

Office staff is always great. Dr. explained clearly the procedure and set good expectations. Was quick, easy, and the next day I feel like nothing had ever been done to my eye. No pain.

My overall experience was excellent. I liked how I could have my pre-ops in Tucson, since there is only one Surgery Center. Joe in Tucson was wonderful. He called me back promptly and alleviated my concerns about the surgery. Overall, a great experience.

Everyone at Nationwide was very helpful. I am very grateful for the time you took to help us find the right pair of glasses for me.
