Well you must be in touch with your doctor. You must go for further investigations, OCT and VF if not done before to evaluate the damage

Glaucoma is a progressive disease the most important thing is to control intraocular pressure which in your case should ideally be less than 15 mm hg if it's controlled with 3 medications and progression is stoped and confirmed by investigation like Visual fields you can continue with drops as the other option is surgery which in your case is a bit risky So continue to monitor your eye pressure from your eye spec which is most important in your case

Aoa.
Glaucoma is uncontrolled can cause irreversible visual damage. Right now you are using maximum medical treatment. Now is the time to decide whether to continue medical treatment or go for surgical option.
Kindly tell me your intra ocular pressures twice weekly for 1 month then we can decide future treatment choice.
Thank you.

Aoa. Kindly check your eye pressure again after 1 week. If it's below 18 then it's fine. You should also get your corneal thickness checked. This test is called pachmetry it's usefull in deciding future treatment. OCT of the nerve fibre layer and optic nerve head will be useful after 1 month.
If things areally all normal after 1 month you should carry on same treatment. Travatan cosopt and alphagan is very good combination against glaucoma eye disease.
If pressure is persistently high despite all this treatment then you should ask your doctor to do trabeculectomy.
You cab also come for a second opinion to Alshifa trust eye hospital, RawalpindI
Call before coming 042-32591427, .
Here we can repeat OCT. Do a visual field scan and tell you about precentage of vision control with current treatment.
