In brief: Maybe
Glycopyrrolate is an antimuscarinic agent and could make your pupils dilate.
If you have an angle prone to acute angle closure, this drug could induce an attack. I am curious why you ask about this drug, as it is not something normally prescribed by any clinic doctor and commonly only used by anesthesiologists during general anesthesia.

In brief: Yes
This class of medicines can cause pupil dilation which can cause an already narrow angle to become more narrow possibly blocking enough outward eye fluid flow leading to an increase in the eye pressure which may cause nerve damage.
