Authors' objectives: To assess the canaloplasty procedure for the treatment of OAG in terms of its effectiveness and safety. The variables targeted for assessment were: changes in IOP; and a reduction in the drugs needed to control pressure.
Authors' recommendations: Canaloplasty reduces IOP and the number of topical drugs needed, with values being maintained 3 years after the intervention. The procedure showed itself to be safe, with a low incidence of adverse effects, both short and medium/long-term.
