Classic treatment: Pilocarpine was the first anti-glaucoma drop developed and has been in use over 100 years. It constricts the pupil and affects the focus of the eye so it has largely been replaced by effective drops that have fewer side effects. It still is a useful agent in some cases and is still available on prescription.
