I have Narrow Angle condition - what can I do for seqasickness?
About a year ago my eye doctor told me I had narrow angles and sent me in for a peripheral iridectomy. I was told not to use antihistamines. The problem is that I am a scuba diver and travel on boats but very prone to seasickness. I have a liveaboard boat vacation planned in March. In the past I have used a scopolamine patch with great success. Because it is an antihistamine I won't be able to use that or any motion sickeness pills. What can I do to safely prevent seasickness. Scuba diving is a passion for me and I really don't want to give it up.
If you have had laser iridotomies and they remain open you can take medications that say "Don't take if you have glaucoma" The eyes at risk are eyes that have occludable angles that HAVE NOT had iridotomies. Confirm this with your surgeon.
