In brief: Many
The goal in glaucoma treatment is to get the internal eye pressure lower than the level causing risk to vision.
Most cases can be assisted with pressure lowering eyedrops to which can be added laser treatment if needed. Advanced or unresponsive cases may need surgery. There are many options; your ophthalmologist can assist you with the best course of action.
