II. Background

  1. Medications that dilate the pupil (Mydriasis ) decrease the anterior chamber angle
  2. Narrowed anterior chamber angle may increase Intraocular Pressure, triggering Narrow Angle Glaucoma
  3. Systemic agents may also cause ciliary body edema

III. Causes: Eye Preparations

IV. Causes: Autonomic Medications

VI. Causes: Sulfa-based Medications

  1. Topiramate
  2. Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazole

VII. Causes: Miscellaneous Medications

  1. Corticosteroids
    1. Risk of Open Angle Glaucoma with longterm Systemic Corticosteroids and especially intra- and periocular Corticosteroids
