Maybe: Tegretol is an anti-cholinergic medication and may cause acute pressure increases in those with narrow anatomical drainage angles (closed angle glaucoma). It is generally safe in patients with open-angle glaucoma but should be observed closely.

Yes: Can induce angle closure glaucoma as well as rarely uveal effusion that can cause bilateral acute angle closure glaucoma.
