The standard answer would be “no.” However, it is possible (though technically quite challenging) for Canaloplasty to be done in an eye that has already had a trabeculectomy that is no longer functioning. If you and your surgeon are considering this option it is important for you to have realistic (guarded) expectations of success. Many patients are interested in the option of Canaloplasty because (compared to other glaucoma surgeries) there are fewer risks. But, if you are not the ideal candidate, there may also be less of a potential benefit.
