Canaloplasty is a minimally invasive advanced interventional procedure that utilizes a microcatheter to restore the eye’s natural drainage system and reduces elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), offering a level of safety that is unmatched in the evolution of glaucoma surgery. Studies have been published demonstrating long-term efficacy and safety. It is a “non-penetrating” glaucoma surgery that does not require making a permanent hole in the eye, therefore it does not result in a “bleb” (blister).
Canaloplasty is performed across the entire glaucoma treatment spectrum and is particularly suited to patients who have difficulty administering eye drops, or for whom medications or laser treatment are no longer effective. It is also a good option for patients who do not wish to undergo more invasive surgeries when at the end stages of this disease, such as trabeculectomy surgery. It is safer, more predictable and is a quicker recovery with minimal post-operative follow-up allowing you to return to normal day-to-day activities almost immediately following treatment.
