So I got a moderately serious totally non-lifting related injury to the surrounding area of one of my eyes. I saw an ophthalmologist who recommended that I avoid powerlifting training for 4-8 weeks, as I could be risking blindness in the eye by increased intraocular pressure reopening the wound. He recommended waiting at least a few weeks before resuming lighter weight training. So in the meantime, I’m bored as hell doing LISS, static stretching, and mobility work.
What I am curious to know is if there is any way I can work around this and do any kind of strength or hypertrophy work in the meantime that will not increase the pressure in my eye.
