In brief: Depends

The use of antidepressants in glaucoma patients depends on how open their "angle" is .
Many open angle glaucoma patients can use any antidepressant because they do not have a narrow "angle" your ophthalmologist should be able, based on your exam, to tell you if this is a concern for you.
