Hi Glaucoma is a silent killer and can affect your optic nerves causing field damage. Sometimes patients can present with brow ache and are totally asymptomatic other times.
Next Steps
Get a detailed examination done and only IOP is not diagnostic of glaucoma. The nerve status needs to be checked and one IOP reading does not signify anything.
Health Tips
Don't take any medicines without proper evaluation please do consult a Glaucoma specialist near you. Physical examination is needed to conclude anything.
