Abstract

Evidence-based recommendations on ab externo canaloplasty for primary open-angle glaucoma in adults. This involves widening the eye’s main draining canal by inserting a tiny tube, then removing the tube and stitching the canal to keep it open.

This guidance replaces NICE interventional procedures guidance on canaloplasty for primary open-angle glaucoma (IPG260).

Next review: this guidance will be reviewed if there is new evidence or safety concerns.
