Namaste dear doc,
I need some advice about the recent ailment attacked to my mamma i.e. Glaucoma to the right eye. Doc has prescribed eye drops for the same, saying the eye pressure is high. I would like to know how to cure this ailment besides drops. Kindly suggest the best cure and tips to overcome. Am very much distressed since I have heard about it.

There is no cure but yes, treatment is available
first line of treatment is eyedrops.
surgery is last resort...surgery will not cure glaucoma but it only decreases dependency on eyedrops.
