    Glaucoma

    In this video, Steven Vold, MD, demonstrates how he creates a 360° viscodilation of Schlemm's canal with an illuminated beacon-tipped microcatheter. The microcatheter is used to place an intracanalicular suture that cinches and stretches the trabecular meshwork inwards while permanently opening Schlemm's canal. With experience, he believes the difficulty and duration of canaloplasty is comparable to trabeculectomy.
