No. To date there is no cure for glaucoma. The best any treatment can do is to halt (or slow) the progression of this disease. The closer the IOP to 8mmHg, the better (below that and the eye can lose vision from the pressure being too low). Studies have shown that for most glaucoma patients an IOP of less than 15mmHg can be protective (a goal often achieved with Canaloplasty). Some forms of glaucoma (such as advanced, low tension, or normal tension glaucoma) require IOPs of less than 12mmHg in order to avoid loss of vision. Only your eye surgeon can determine what your eye’s goal should be.
