Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

There are none that are shown to work effectively enough to treat this potentially blinding disease.

Dr. Rick :

I would not risk going blind by trying to use "natural" medicines to treat glaucoma and this includes the use of marijuana

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?

Dr. Rick :

There are very effective drops that will treat eye pressure with no known systemic side effects. These are called prostaglandin analogs. One such medicine is called Travatan.

Dr. Rick :

I guess you have stepped away from your computer.
