In brief: Good

The prognosis is good if you use the medications as directed and keep all follow up appointments with your ophthalmologist.

Albeit an ophthalomogist, you essentially repeated my answer, rather than agrreing with mine. I think I said exactly the same thing and more!

In brief: Fairly good.

Since most of your vision is conserved, your outcome, with all available to your ophthalmologist , should be good! but your letter stresses the importance of examination of the eyes, more so, to prevent most glaucoma associated damage!
