If you've been using glaucoma drops for many years, it's possible that your surgeon may not achieve full catheterization during canaloplasty. That's because using drops can have some long term effects on the natural drainage system. That being said, even if full catheterization cannot be achieved, generally pressure reduction can still be achieved by incomplete catheterization and dilation of the canal. This effect, long term of using drops, has more surgeons considering offering canaloplasty earlier before the long term damage has been done to the natural drainage canal. You may want to ask your surgeon whether or not you will be a candidate for canaloplasty earlier on in your glaucoma treatment.

Topical medical therapy (drops) work well for most people with glaucoma. Unfortunately, that is not true for everyone. For those in whom drops are not effective it is necessary to consider other treatment options such as canalopasty glaucoma surgery.
Yes, 10 years is considered "long term."
