Question

 

 

 

Hi,

I have been doing weight training for 6 months but my eye specialist told me to not lift heavy weights because I had laser treatment for retinal tear 3 years ago. 

So do I need to stop weight training completely or do I need to drop weights ?

Thanks

Thanks for your Question 

Many studies showed a correlation between heavy weight lifting and retinal detachment but in case you have laser retinopexy you can do weight lifting with caution
