We have reviewed studies investigating the effect of physical activity on prevention of early age-related macular degeneration (AMD), progression to late AMD, and risk modulation of morbidity and mortality in patients with AMD. Regular physical activity may lower risk of developing early AMD and progression of early AMD to late AMD at a level comparable with smoking cessation or dietary supplements. Studies suggest that AMD itself is associated with physical inactivity which can result in higher morbidity levels. Patients with AMD may benefit from physical activity counselling at all stages of the disease.
