Great question. Have you had a recent eye examination and been diagnosed with glaucoma? Calcium channel blockers and diuretics are commonly used to lower blood pressure. They can make glaucoma advance more quickly. ACE inhibitors have less risk in this regard. Please speak to your prescribing doctor about your concerns.
Best of health,

I would recommend coordinating your care between your primary care (or cardiologist) and your eye care provider so as to best manage your needed medications and potential side affects.
