Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery, available at CODET 7/3/2017

Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery,
available at CODET 

 

A new surgical treatment option is now available for patients with non-severe Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma.


CyPass Micro-Stent by Alcon​

It involves a medical, minimally invasive device called CyPass Micro-Stent by Alcon, which was recently approved by the FDA in the USA for its use in patients with mild and moderate Glaucoma in conjunction with cataract surgery.

The CyPass Micro-Stent is implanted during cataract surgery and it is specially designed to reduce ocular pressure, increasing the exiting watery flow through one of the eye’s natural drainage pathways; thus allowing the exit of the excess of ocular liquid that causes high pressure inside the eye.

All of this is accomplished with a minimal alteration of the tissue since it is a minimally invasive surgery, MIGS (Micro Incision Glaucoma Surgery) that allows recovery time to be very fast.

The Glaucoma Department at CODET Vision Institute evaluated the CyPass Micro-Stent when it was a prototype, knowing that this technology was very promising and would represent a greatly innovative option for patients that are candidates for glaucoma surgery.

In the month of June, CODET Vision Institute was the first ophthalmic clinic in Mexico that had the opportunity to implant this device, already approved for commercial use in Mexico, with the result being a resounding success.

The surgery was filmed through Facebook Live, where the Glaucoma Department at CODET Vision Institute, Dr. Marina Ramirez and Dr. Gabriela Ávila, performed the minimally invasive glaucoma surgery procedures with CyPass.
