The XEN Gel Stent is a 6.0 millimeter long flexible tube made of chemically treated gelatin. This tube is placed in the eye with one end in the anterior chamber.
The eyeWatch™ is an experimental Adjustable Glaucoma Drainage Device developed by the Swiss company Rheon Medical. In theory, it allows adjustment of IOP after implantation.
The InnFocus MicroShunt® may very well be what we were hoping the EX-PRESS® Glaucoma Filtration Device would be: a faster, safer alternative to trabeculectomy.
Trabecular bypass implants are tubes that work by shunting aqueous fluid from the anterior chamber through the sclera into the subconjunctival space.
