Abstract

The surgery related to the schlemm’s canal is characterized by draining aqueous homur from natural pathway.It is widely accepted by ophthalmologists due to less complications and no need for concern about the scar formation.But we should understand these emerging and evolving technologies rationally.In the article, some topics were discussed, including the relationship between schlemm’s canal and glaucoma, evolution, principle and effect of these surgeries, some dilemma problems and the expectations for the future.We hope it would help the ophthalmologist to understand this type of surgeries.

Key words:

Glaucoma; Schlemm’s canal; Surgery; Aqueous humor outflow
