Advil (ibuprofen): Yes. If you have recently had glaucoma filtering surgery, you may wish to wait until your eye surgeon says it is ok to resume taking nsaids, of which Advil (ibuprofen) is a member.

Not related: The medicine in advil (ibuprofen) is not known to adversely affect glaucoma. Advil (ibuprofen) has its own precautions to be aware of.
