I have had retinal detachment surgeries on both my eyes 10-15 years ago, i've also had few argon lasers, have myopia (around 8-9 on each eye but dropped to 4 post cataract so i guess in practice it's still 8-9) and glaucoma. I'm 24 years old and i would like to start boxing as a sport. I won't be competing with anyone, it's just gonna be for fitness. Punching sandbags, skipping ropes and other trainings that don't involve body contact. Would that be dangerous considering my past retinal detachment surgeries and high myopia? I will consult my specialist about that this week but i wanted to ask in advance to get a second opinion in advance.
One other thing, what's your opinion on weight lifting? Some sources indicate it's a risk factor some say it's ok.
