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.
