Retinal cells become increasingly vulnerable to injury as we get older.
Scientists recently showed that the vulnerability to eye injury and retinal protection could be modified with exercise.
In middle-aged mice models, they found that exercise protected against dysfunction and cell loss after an acute injury induced by elevation of intraocular pressure.
Who would have thought that exercise could be good for the eyes?
