Your assessment shows you may be qualified for Canaloplasty!
You’ve indicated that you have had prior glaucoma surgery. Because of this you do not qualify for the no-cost consultation. However, it may still be possible for you to benefit from Canaloplasty after certain types of glaucoma surgery. The only way to tell if you are a candidate for Canaloplasty after prior glaucoma surgery is to have an in-person consultation with a surgeon who performs Canaloplasty.
You may call (626) 289-7856 to set up an in person consultation. Alternatively, you may request for an appointment with Dr. David Richardson via below form. Consultation fee is at a reasonable $197.
- Canaloplasty cannot be done with closed angle glaucoma.
- Canaloplasty cannot be done after the Trabectome procedure.
- Canaloplasty may be done after ALT or SLT, but there is a higher chance that the canal cannot be fully catheterized due to prior scarring of the canal from the laser treatment. Even without full catheterization, Viscocanalostomy (similar to Canaloplasty) can often be performed with successful lowering of the IOP.
