Default Glaucoma in both eyes

looks like little Jack has evidence of glaucoma in both eyes. Can't remeber pressures off hand one is actually good and the other just a bit higher, both seemed within normal though. BUT his optic nerve is pushed out and eveidence of veins or something in the whites of the eyes.

We are going to try and treat with drops first, and if that diesn't seem successful then surgery is an option. Anyone else deal with this? Have you been able to control it? Are we headed for blindness down the road? Looking for a realalistic veiw point here.
thanks

Gail,
Hi. Austin was diagnosed over a year ago with glaucoma in the left eye and his right eye is hanging around boarderline. Austin is on Azopt drops and they are working. They have the least amount of side effects. I wish that I could tell you more...... I will keep him in ny thoughts and prayers.
Hugs,
Jinny
