Probably: I noticed that you have had bilateral laser iridotomies, a treatment for narrow angle glaucoma. If your treating eye physician has indicated to you that your drainage angle is now much more open, then it's probably okay to use Zyrtec (cetirizine). To be sure, call the eye MD's office and verify.

Yes: Zyrtec (cetirizine) will not affect this condition. If you have had this diagnosis, hopefully you have seen an ophthalmologist who can apply a curative laser treatment and take away any risk you might have.
