What are injected stents?

What are injected stents?

iStent is designed to create a permanent opening in your eye’s drainage system, bypassing the blockage to improve the outflow of fluid from your eye. Normally two istents are inserted at the time of surgery, increasing fluid outflow, drainage and lowering eye pressure within the eye.

What is a Hydrus stent?

The Hydrus device is made of a tiny tube. The Hydrus creates a path that allows the fluid inside the eye to bypass the natural drain of the eye. Reduced drainage is one reason that high eye pressures can develop in glaucoma. The Hydrus procedure is approved to be performed only in conjunction with cataract surgery.

What can I expect after an eye stent?

After surgery, your eye may be sore, and it may feel like there is something in it, like an eyelash. The drops may burn when you put them in, and your eye may water or tear a lot. These symptoms are common but usually are mild, and improve for most people after 1-2 days.

What is an omni procedure?

Omni® is a comprehensive minimally invasive glaucoma procedure (MIGS) procedure that can be combined with or done without cataract surgery. It is performed via micro-incisions in the cornea to gain access to the trabecular meshwork outflow pathway.

How long does an iStent last?

There is a third study comparing the Hydrus to the iStent Trabecular Micro-bypass device in a prospective, multicenter randomized clinical trial. The effect appears to be durable for at least 24 months.

Is hydrus a Migs?

This minimally invasive technique, the Hydrus stent is highly effective in reducing pressure in those with glaucoma.

Is hydrus effective?

The Hydrus™ Microstent is a highly effective device implanted to reduce intraocular pressure in patients with mild to moderate primary open-angle glaucoma.

How long does it take to recover from eye stent surgery?

Recovery time after glaucoma surgery varies per patient and per surgery, but most patients heal within 3 to 6 weeks. Reserve the day after the surgery for recovery time. During the rest of the recovery time, it’s generally recommended that postoperative glaucoma patients avoid strenuous activity.

What is Omni device?

The OMNI device is a new minimally invasive surgical option for glaucoma. Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery is exciting because of its safety profile and fast post-operative recovery.

What is Omni surgical System for glaucoma?

The OMNI® Surgical System is indicated for canaloplasty (microcatheterization and transluminal viscodilation of Schlemm’s canal) followed by trabeculotomy (cutting of trabecular meshwork) to reduce intraocular pressure in adult patients with primary open-angle glaucoma.

What’s new at Glaukos?

Glaukos launched its next-generation iStent inject ® device in the United States in 2018. In addition to an abiding focus on glaucoma, Glaukos is broadening its mission to include new aspirations that seek to improve treatment alternatives and quality of life for people suffering with corneal disorders and retinal diseases.

What is the iprism SX?

Glaukos has unveiled a new single-use surgical gonioscopy lens that is said to provide exceptional clarity with expanded views of angle structures. The iprism SX also possesses enhanced design characteristics, including integrated stabilisation features, to provide surgeons with precise lens handling during intraoperative gonioscopy procedures.

Why invest in Glaukos?

Glaukos is committed to investing in the future of ophthalmology to transform standards of care and improve patient lives. See how our dedicated commitment to continuous innovation has resulted in an unrivaled pipeline of novel therapies.

What are the benefits of a gonioprism?

Additionally, the gentle stabilisation features that are integrated into the gonioprism helps to centre the view and provide steady control. Alignment guides also enable confident stent placement for the practitioner by optimising positioning and clock hour spacing.
