FAQs / Underwent Surgery Twice, Is Canaloplasty Still Possible?

QUESTION:

Hi, Sir I’ve heard a lot about you as a glucoma specialist. I have glaucoma for five years already on my left eye. I’ve underwent surgery twice under the same doctor, Dr ******. So, please help me on the treatment. Also, please send me your email address so we can talk easily and you can help me

ANSWER:

Hello P****,

I’m sorry to hear about the difficulty you are having with your left eye. Unfortunately, I doubt that canaloplasty would be effective if you’ve already had two surgeries on the eye. To the best of my knowledge, Dr. Ganesh Venkataraman at the Aravind Eye Hospital performs canaloplasty. I recommend that you contact him as there is very little I can do by email. An in-person examination at the clinical microscope is needed in order to determine what treatment would be most appropriate for your eye.
