In brief: Can't
Glaucoma does not go away .
The diagnosis is for a lifetime and needs constant monitoring and treatment.

The exception is narrow angle glaucoma suspect which can be "cured" with a laser iridotomy.

In brief: Depends
Most glaucoma is genetic and since there's no cure, once you have it, you have it, and it can't recur. However, if its secondary, then you can takes steps to stop it from recurring, depending on the cause.
Ask your eye doctor to help you.

In brief: Treating
Glaucoma can be controlled with therapy in that the rate of vision loss is slowed so that there is no significant vision change in a person's lifetime.
Secondary glaucomas can be prevented if the underlying diseases such as neovascular glaucoma due to diabetes, avoiding trauma (traumatic glaucoma), etc. Are controlled.
