If you have narrow angles (too narrow and you get angle-closure glaucoma), then medications that dilate your pupils (eg. sertraline and atomoxetine) will increase intraocular pressure.

The other type of glaucoma is called open-angle glaucoma, and is not sensitive to pupil size. I don't know what kind of medications, if any, that interact with this condition.
