Glaucoma patients: Beware of Yoga...

In yoga there is an aasana ‘sheershaasan’ (head stand). It is believed that doing this yoga exercise at 50+ age, might affect adversely on your eye pressure (intraocular pressure).

If the intraocular pressure shoots-up beyond permissible limits you might get Glaucoma that can lead to blindness. Because high eye-pressure will damage the optic nerve and will end up in a blind eye.

People at the age of 50 and above are advised to be careful about their eyes and get their eye-test done on regular basis.
