There is now an advanced glaucoma procedure which works as well as trabeculectomy for most glaucoma patients and has significantly fewer risks. It's called canaloplasty.
Canaloplasty is an exciting development in the surgical treatment of glaucoma. If you have glaucoma and are having difficulty with your eyedrops, considering cataract surgery, or have been told that you may need glaucoma surgery, you should consider this lower-risk option to traditional trabeculoplasty. I hope this video has been helpful to you as you make this very important decision.
