Because Canaloplasty has only been FDA approved since 2008, we only have three-year results. There is no reason, however, to believe that the surgery will “stop working.” In a study that looked at the long-term (7 year) results of combined cataract surgery and viscocanalostomy (the less effective precursor to Canaloplasty), IOP was reduced by over 33%(on average) at the last documented visit. We can reasonably expect the long-term results of Canaloplasty and Phacocanaloplasty to be even better than those published for viscocanalostomy and Phacoviscocanalostomy.
