Medical treatment is aimed atlowering the pressure inside the eye. IOP-lowering medications, which come in the form of medicated eyedrops, are used to reduce the pressure by at least 30% (see How to Instill Your Eyedrops). Hopefully, by keeping the IOP low, normal-tension glaucoma can be stabilized, meaning no further optic damage or vision loss occurs.
