I have open-angle glaucoma. Can I take seasickness tablets without any adverse reactions?
If you have open-angle glaucoma, there should be no problem taking medications to prevent seasickness. These medications only present an issue if you have narrow angles (angle closure glaucoma or narrow angle glaucoma, when the iris blocks fluid from leaving the eye) and are at heightened risk of angle closure.
