Does everyday eye accommodation, focusing or blinking worsen pigmentary dispersion syndrome?

In brief: A little bit

The motion of the iris against the underlying fibers that support the lens (zonules) rubs off the pigment from the back of the iris which is the basis for pigmentary dispersion.
A little bit comes off with everyday normal use and it can be accelerated with athletic pursuits. As long as your ophthalmologist feels that the internal eye pressure is not being increased, this is ok.
