Thanks for your question

You should know what is the cause of this high intraocular pressure, is it open angle glaucoma or close angle glaucoma because the next treatment will depend mainly on the type of glaucoma and you shouldn't wait that much without definite treatment.

Many treatment options available for glaucoma such as lasers and surgeries but as i said the type and cause of glaucoma are very important for choosing the proper treatment
