Directly answering to your main question - Mere rise in IOP would amount to ocular hypertension . Without optic nerve changes or visual field defects anti glaucoma medicines canno be started. Your doctor is right in having a wait and watch policy.
Since you already know most of the things pertaining to glaucoma, nothing in that regard has been discussed. Moreover the answer given is specific to your question.
