Glaucoma is a condition that requires lifelong monitoring and treatment. While there is no “cure” for glaucoma, early detection and ongoing treatment can control the disease process. Eye Care’s physicians will work with you to find the best treatment plan for you. Treatment for glaucoma can include medication and/or surgery. Glaucoma surgery may be performed using a laser or conventional surgical techniques. The kind of surgery your Eye Care physician recommends or advises is right for you depends on many factors, including the type and severity of your glaucoma and your other eye problems or health conditions.
Canaloplasty is a surgical alternative to lower intraocular (IOP) pressure for patients with glaucoma. The goal of canaloplasty is to treat open angle glaucoma by reopening the body’s natural drainage system within the eye. Canaloplasty is considered to be a safe alternative to current surgical options and has had less postoperative complications than other treatment options.
