Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
A pressure of 35 cannot be left to be controlled by iotim drop only. I would be keen to use a tablet Diamox or cap Iopar SR twice a day for 3 days to bring the pressure to within around 25 which then will be easily controlled by drop only.

Since this is a transient phenomenon as it was not there sometime back, use oral medicine a short while then continue with drops.

Do get back to me in case of any further query in this regard.

Brief Answer:
Glaucoma

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Good of you to get back to me.
Yes ,it is a danger to eyesight if untreated.If managed well you will be fine.I personally,in my practice,do not allow this level of pressure as a raised pressure causes irreversible nerve damage.So to be safe control pressure by oral medicine and maintain by drops.
