Canaloplasty is an advanced surgical treatment for glaucoma. It uses breakthrough microcatheter technology to enlarge your eye’s natural drainage system, similar to angioplasty. Canaloplasty is a restorative treatment. Unlike trabeculectomy, which bypasses the eye’s natural drainage channels, Canaloplasty restores the natural outflow pathways in order to reduce elevated intraocular pressure (IOP). It is a “non-penetrating” glaucoma surgery that does not require the creation of a permanent hole in the eye, so does not result in a “bleb” (blister). Canaloplasty has an excellent safety profile with minimal post-operative follow-up and faster recovery time.
