In brief: Ideal IOP

Eyedrops to lower the pressure depend upon the target pressure.
If you are visually stable (no changes in vision and field) at a pressure of 19-20, then you are ok. But if you are losing vision and no more agents are available, you might need laser or operative surgery. Timolol should be available in india.

In brief: That may be ok

Depending on the severity of your glaucoma an eye pressure of 19 or 20 may be acceptable.
