Is Canaloplasty Surgery Painful?
No. During surgery your eye will be anesthetized (numbed). After surgery you will be given drops to reduced inflammation and prevent pain. Generally, people do notice a “foreign body sensation” (scratchy sensation) under the upper eyelid for up to a few weeks after surgery. This is caused by the slowly dissolving sutures and resolves on its own. If you have Canaloplasty surgery and have more severe pain than what is described here, you should immediately contact your surgeon.
