Is it possible to have canaloplasty evaluation and operation at the same day?
Yes. So long as Ana has all of the information required by the hospital it could be done. However, the in-office examination requires dilation. Unless we are also considering cataract surgery I would prefer the eye to be undilated at the time of cataract surgery. Additionally, the anesthesiologist will prefer that you’ve had at least 24 hours in the USA before undergoing surgery. My preferred approach would be to schedule surgery at least one day after the initial evaluation.
