    What does 'good' mean? I am amazed that there is such a dearth of information on Dr Google about the prognosis in sufferers of glaucoma. I have recently been diagnosed, but cannot find anything on what to expect. I have sight in one eye only to start with, and most info of any sort relates to binocular individuals. With only one eye, normal pressure glaucoma and noticable peripheral vison blurring, what can I expect? I am on IOP reducing drops, but can I expect no further deterioration? Significant detrioration within 1 year? 5 years? 10 years? Will I know more after the condition has been monitored for 3 months? 6 months? 1 year? Please point me to some information! Thanks.
