Assess the variation in IOP in response to isokinetic exercise
Ten female athletes from the juveline handball team of Jundiaí - SP were assessed. The IOP of both eyes was determined by 2 measures using the Perkins tonometer: right before and immediately after this athletes perform the isokinetic exercise. The t test de Student was used to the statistical analysis.
Significant reduction on IOP was observed on both eyes of all athletes after performing isokinetic exercises. The mean baseline IOP was 13,1 ± 2,33 mmHg on the right eye and 12,5 ± 2,60 mmHg on the left eye. After the exercise the mean IOP was 9,9 ± 2,6 mmHg (p=0,0007) on the right eye and 9,3 ± 2,26 mmHg (p=0,0001) on the left eye.
We found a significant decrease on IOP levels after isokinetic exercise.
