Abstract

Objective: ToStudy the effect of isometric handgrip exercise test on Intra ocular pressure in young adults
Method: Healthy young male adults in the age group of 18-22 years were selected among MBBS phase
I students of a Medical college .Sample size was 40. Heart rate and IOP were recorded at rest and after
isometric handgriptest
Results: Right eye IOP has decreased significantly from resting 16.28±1.55 to 9.30±1.79( p<0.001)
immediately after handgripexercise IOP Left eye IOP has decreased significantly from resting 16.15±1.69 to
13.04±1.19 (p<0.001)immediately after handgrip exercise IOP
Conclusion: Isometric handgripexercise lowers IOP which were significant. Hence may prove useful in
normotensive glaucomatous patients
