Help Spot Patients on Antidepressants Who Are at Risk for Glaucoma

Patients will hear about Health Canada's warning on the risk of "NARROW-angle" glaucoma with antidepressants (amitriptyline, etc).

Antidepressants can dilate pupils and potentially block drainage in patients with narrow eye fluid channels.

The good news is that risk is low. It's more likely in patients at risk for narrow-angle glaucoma due to a family history, smaller eyes, Asian or Inuit ancestry, older age, or in females.
