I have glaucoma in both eyes and suffer from poor vision. It was actually detected late when the damage was done. Apart from using the prescribed eye drops is there anything in alternative treatment that can arrest or improve my eyesight.

The most common type of glaucoma (open-angle glaucoma) often has no symptoms other than slow vision loss. Angle-closure glaucoma, although rare, is a medical emergency and its symptoms include eye pain with nausea and sudden visual disturbance. Treatment includes eye drops, medication and surgery.
