Canaloplasty is an effective, implant free solution for long term relief of intraocular pressure by restoring your eye’s natural drainage pathways. At Beverly Hills Institute of Ophthalmology, we utilize two advanced systems for performing canaloplasty: iTrack and Omni®. Both systems are at the forefront of medical advances, and our highly trained and experienced ophthalmologists can help determine which is right for you.
The benefits of canaloplasty
- Effectively reduces the intraocular pressure associated with open-angle glaucoma
- Helps reduce dependency on medicated eye drops
- Does not alter anatomy and limit future surgical interventions
One of the most groundbreaking systems for performing canaloplasty is called iTrack, and it utilizes the only FDA-approved illuminated microcatheter. The catheter is used to insert viscoelastic gel to dilate the canal two to three times its normal size, thereby opening up the drainage pathways within the eye.
Omni is an effective canaloplasty system that targets three distinct areas that can cause blockage in your eye’s natural ability to drain fluid:
- The trabecular meshwork (a mesh membrane that allows fluid to pass through)
- Schlemm’s canal (the canal in which fluid flows before entering the trabecular meshwork)
- Collector channels (the individual channels that fluid flows in to escape)
By treating all three areas with a single device, our ophthalmologists can use Omni to provide long-term relief that reduces dependency on medicated eye drops.
