AIM: The aim of the study is to find the effect of Isotonic exercise (walking on treadmill) on Intraocular pressure. To find the association of exercise on intraocular pressure.MATERIALS AND METHODS: It is a prospective study conducted in the department of ophthalmology Meenakshi Medical College and research institute, Enathur, Kanchipuram from June 2019 – December 2019. Medical students satisfying inclusion criteria are selected, procedure were explained, consent for the study were taken.RESULT:In our study we noticed significant reduction in intraocular pressure measured immediately after an isotonic exercise (walking in treadmill for 30 minutes) in all students.
