One of the most common questions that I get from my patients is, “Will I able to stop all of my drops after Canaloplasty?” It’s important to recognize that the primary goal of any glaucoma surgery, including Canaloplasty, is to protect the eye from further loss of vision by lowering the pressure. Now, once the pressure is lowered, it’s often possible to also stop some drops. Most patients who have Canaloplasty, especially those who had Canaloplasty and cataract surgery together, are able to stop the majority of their drops. Some are actually able to stop all of those drops. It is difficult to predict before surgery whether or not you’ll be one of those patients. But this is something that I would discuss with your surgeon.
