PDF File Journal: A Review of Canaloplasty. Abstract Canaloplasty is a method of lowering intraocular pressure (IOP) by which a flexible, bea- con-tipped microcatheter equipped with an ophthalmic viscosurgical device (OVD) delivery system is used to catheterize and introduce a suture into Schlemm’s canal. Ligation of this suture provides tension on the canal and facilitates aqueous outflow. Canaloplasty is designed to be a blebless pro- cedure that requires no antifibrotic agents and has been shown to safely and effectively lower IOP in patients with open-angle glaucoma (OAG) with minimal complications
