FAQs / What Is an Average Surgery Time for a Canaloplasty?


Most surgeons can complete Canaloplasty in 45 minutes. I’m slow (and a bit obsessive-compulsive) so I may take over an hour if needed. It’s my belief (shared by the “father” of Canaloplasty, Robert Stegmann) that the incision needs to be water tight in order to force aqueous fluid through the natural drainage system that has just been reopened. Suturing takes time. Time is not something most busy eye surgeons have a lot of.

Warm regards,
