FAQs / Can Canaloplasty Surgery Prevent Losing Vision Completely?

QUESTION:

Hello Dr, my dad is 73 and suffering from glaucoma and he already lost 80% of his vision, he is using 2 drops twice a day. Can he benefit of canaloplasty surgery to prevent losing his vision completely, and where can it be done in Canada Ontario.

ANSWER:

Alas, there is no way to determine whether someone can benefit from canaloplasty (or any surgery for that matter) without an in-person exam. Additionally, it appears to be difficult to get canaloplasty in Canada (I just had a patient fly out to California from Toronto to have me perform canaloplasty on both eyes).
