What can people with high eye pressure, glaucoma take for seasonal allergies?

Warning. Seasonal allergy meds may have a warning about glaucoma. This is relevant to narrow angle glaucoma patients, since it is theoretically possible to induce an angle closure attack if not already treated--check with your eye doctor to see if you are at risk.
Need to treat pressu. High eye pressure should not be left untreated especially if it is causing nerve damage. That is a priority as whatever damage occurs is not reversible. Once the pressure is brought down then they can be treated as any person with normal eyes.

An uncommon type is angle closure which theoretically can be affected by some anti-allergic products. If you are younger than age 50, don't worry. In any event a problem with glaucoma caused by anti-allergic products is rare even though the package cautions you about glaucoma. Read more...
Depends. If your glaucoma is an open angle type of glaucoma, then you can be free to use any medication. However if you have narrow angles, this may be contraindicated. It is best to ask your doctor which kind you have, and if it is narrow, ask if it is okay for you. Sometimes when narrow angle patients have been adequately treated, they can be able to use these meds. Hope this helps! Read more...
