In brief: Favorable

You have early loss with probably no functional damage at this point.
Glaucoma is successfully treated with regular follow-ups and diligent use of the treatment recommended. You can do well with reasonable effort on your part. And the advice of a good glaucoma ophthalmologist.

In brief: GOOD

That response to medication is grand.
Keep up meds and keep contact periodically with the ophthalmologist. You're on the right path.
