Glaucoma – Medical Therapy

Medical therapy consists of eye drops, and in some cases tablets.

Eye drops need to be used daily, or in some cases twice per day, and therapy is usually ongoing for the rest of your life.

There are multiple different types of eye drops used to treat glaucoma.

If you and your doctor decide this is the best option for you, you will work together to find the right eye drop regime.

For many patients, their glaucoma can be controlled with just one eye drop a day.
