Can I Continue To Wear Soft Contact Lenses After Canaloplasty?

One of the unfortunate things about traditional glaucoma surgeries such as trabeculectomy and tubes or shunts, is that, if you’re a soft contact wearer now, after surgery you may not able to wear soft contact lenses. It is possible for some people to wear hard or rigid gas permeable contact lenses after traditional surgery, but because of the bleb soft lenses are generally not a good idea. One of the benefits of canaloplasty is that in general, if you’re a soft contact lenses wearer before surgery, once the eyes healed from surgery, you should be able to be refit for a new pair of contact lenses after the eye is healed.
