PDF File Canaloplasty for Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma. Background Glaucoma is a common eye disease caused by elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) that leads to optic nerve damage and visual field loss. Glaucoma is frequently referred to as the “silent thief of sight” because it is not usually associated with ocular or systemic symptoms but can cause irreversible blindness if left undiagnosed and untreated. It is estimated that over 2 million people in the United States have glaucoma, 80,000 of whom are legally blind as the result of the disease (Lee 2005).
