I already had traditional glaucoma surgery trabeculectomy, can I have Canaloplasty?

If you already had standard glaucoma surgery called trabeculectomy, then generally, you’re not a good candidate for canaloplasty. The reason for that is that trabeculectomy actually removes a portion of the canal. And that scarring can make it difficult for your surgeon to achieve dilation catheterization of that natural drainage canal. That being said, it is possible in certain cases for surgeon to perform canaloplasty after traditional glaucoma surgery. You should speak to your surgeon about whether or not you might be a candidate for canaloplasty after trabeculectomy.
