    Question:

    How does using antihistamines affect my glaucoma?


    Answer:

    Antihistamines can cause an angle closure glaucoma attack (when fluid is completely blocked from leaving the eye, causing a dangerous rise in pressure) in some patients who have narrow angles. You should check with your ophthalmologist to learn what type of glaucoma you have and whether antihistamine usage could cause this problem.
