In brief: Ophthalmologist

Your glaucoma should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist who can then prescribe the correct drops for your problem. There are no over-the-counter glaucoma drops.

In brief: See eye doc

There are a number of eyedrops effective for the treatment of glaucoma.
These are prescription items and require a doctors signature. If you have glaucoma, you should be followed by your ophthalmologist who can recommended a proper therapeutic course. Alternative and over the counter medications are not helpful for glaucoma.

For recommendation.
Four typical prescription eyedrop classes commonly used today: prostaglandins, beta blockers, carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, and Alpha agonists. Some other older classes with more side effects and higher dosing frequency. No over the counter recommendations.

This needs to be recommended by your eye md.
There are several medications available, but they are all prescription anyways. Lumigan, travatan, xalatan, timoptic, (timolol) cosopt, combigan, alphagan p, and the newest medication, zioptan. They all have good and bad so ask your eye md.
