In brief: Depends on type

May require eye drops to lower pressure may require laser or cataract removal to open a narrow angle may require glaucoma surgery if the pressure is still too high despite topical medications and/or different laser encourage exercise, remove any secondary causes/side effects follow with a specialist.

In brief: See an eye doctor

Glaucoma is a potentially blinding disease, and vision loss is irreversible.
Treatments include eye drops, laser surgery and conventional surgery. The severity and duration of the disease helps your eye doctor determine the best treatment for you. Like a fitted suit, the treatment for glaucoma is tailored to each individual.
