Question:
Can jumping on a mini-trampoline be dangerous if you have increased risk of detached retina?

Answer:
Jumping on the trampoline should not be a problem, even if you have an increased risk of detached retina. However, if you see flashes or floaters during or after this exertion, it would be good to be evaluated.
