Child has congenital glaucoma. How long should we wait?

Dear Sir, I have 25 days old nephew on whose eyes is having contenginal glaucoma problem. As far as I equired about this deases that I came to know this is good to diagnose this problemin early age of the boy but I also came to know that this has to be treated as soon as possible. As per the local doctor suggestion we cunsulted this glaucoma specialist but he said that this case is quite critical but he suggested to come after one month because one nerve which goes from eye to nose is infected and also boy weight is also not so good, So, he asked to cunsult child specialist and do something for his weight. Now, My doubt is that with all these it shouldn t too late that we could not cure his eyes problem
