Hello dear..glaucoma is a disease in which pressure in eye increases leading to damage to optic nerve(nerve which carries signal from eye to brain)...damage in glaucoma is irreversible....usually it is progressive and bilateral...treatment depends on proper glaucoma evaluation which include...measuring Intraocular pressure...gonioscopy....measuring central corneal thickness...optic disc evaluation ...measuring visual field ....so dear...as u see a doctor needs to evaluate so many things and based on evaluation doctor starts treatment...so without knowing all these parameters its not possible to start treatment...i advise you to consult local glaucoma specilist...regards

Hello there. Glaucoma is a condition in which intraocular pressure is raised due to either high production of the fluid or improper drainage. Each case needs to be examined to find out what the type of glaucoma is because the treatment differs. For medicine, you will have to consult a ophthalmologist in person because even if we knew what kind of glaucoma it is, its illegal to prescribe medicines on this platform. Regards
