Is glaucoma curable ?

I am a patient of glaucoma . I ve completely lost my vision from right eye. I can see the objects only from the left eye but cant read the letters. My age is 50 years.Actually in 1987 I had an operation of both the eyes at Aligarh.After thatI was able to read and write from right eye. Then after 2005,I completely lost the vision from right eye. However it seems that the vision in left eye remained stable as then also I was able to see the objects and now also I can see only the objects. So,will it be cured? Thank you.

dear Mr Sunil
It is unfortunate that you have developed Glaucoma, also known as Silent Vision killer
Generally Vision lost due to glaucoma is irreversible, You need to be under proper medical supervision to monitor your eye pressures and maked necessary changes in medication to preserve whatever vision is balance.
Do not ignore your eyes and take proper treatment

hello. I'm 16. For the past several months I've been getting headaches and general pressure around my eyes. I am also more sensitive to light and have trouble focusing my vision.
