In brief: ? 30%

I would question further into how they are making the assessment if 30% damage and even if you really have glaucoma.
You may only be suspect due to a few findings. See an eye md. Prognosis is great with most types of glaucoma and today's treatment with drops and laser.

In brief: Good.

You have responded well to a single drop.
With close follow up and monitoring of visual field and eye pressure, most patients who are compliant with their drop instructions can do extremely well.
