Hi,
Visecare or solifenacin is used in cases of overactive bladder. It is usually contraindicated in cases of glaucoma, specially narrow angle glaucoma as it can lead to uncontrolled intraocular pressure. So, if the patient is being treated for glaucoma, then this medicine should only be taken after discussing with the treating Ophthalmologist.
