Boxing After Cataract Surgery?
Hello, I want to ask, right when I was in grade 1 junior had cataract surgery on my right eye. Starting from entering high school until now I am in the second grade of high school. I attended boxing training class and I really like the sport. Sometimes I like to boxing sparring and I have been in a boxing competition where in the game I often come into direct contact with my head like I was hit. Is that okay with my eye condition since I have had cataract surgery?
Cataract is a condition where there is turbidity in the lens of the eye that can cause blurred vision to blindness. Some types of cataracts include:
Congenital cataract, the condition of the opacification of the lens of the eye from birth
Junvenil cataract, a cataract that occurs at the age of children
Senile cataract, cataracts that occur in old age (generally over 40 years)
Complicated cataracts, cataracts caused by trauma or certain diseases
The only treatment that can restore the vision of people who have cataracts is surgery.
Related to whether or not someone who has a history of cataract surgery do boxing, it needs to be consulted directly to the eye doctor. In direct consultation, the ophthalmologist can perform several examinations on your eyes to determine whether facial trauma that usually occurs in boxers can affect your eyes that have a history of cataract surgery. It is highly recommended to visit an eye doctor especially if your eyes have complaints after a trauma or a blow to the face,
The things you can do to keep your body in good condition when you are in boxing include:
Get enough rest and consume nutritious food
Drinking water consumption of at least 2 L / minute
Do not smoke and drink alcohol
