I would see an ophthalmologist for confirmation and treatment if it is needed. They can explain the alternatives you have available after a proper exam.

Pressure should be rechecked. Field of vision testing will help. Yes drops will be prescribed by the ophthalmologist depending on open angle or closed angle glaucoma. It is also possible to change medications if you are taking to change eye pressure. So there are so many good options available to you with a visit to an ophthalmologist. Good luck. Hope it helps.
