Dr. RichardsonNo. For example, Dr. Richardson is not a glaucoma specialist. A glaucoma specialist is someone who spends one to two additional years after residency learning how to deal with advanced and unusual forms of glaucoma. Because Canaloplasty can most effectively treat earlier (less advanced) forms of the more common types of open angle glaucoma, it is often performed by general ophthalmologists and/or cataract surgeons. Indeed, it is particularly effective when done at the same time as cataract surgery – in which case it is called “phacocanaloplasty.”
