A British study in the journal Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science found a 25% lower risk of low ocular perfusion pressure among men and women who performed moderate physical exercise during a 15-year period. Although the study failed to explain the link between ocular perfusion pressure and cardiovascular fitness, "there is certainly an association between a sedentary lifestyle and factors which increase glaucoma risk," researchers said. The findings were based on physical activity and eye pressure examination of 5,650 men and women ages 48 to 90.
