Hydrus Microstent

Roughly the size of an eyelash, the highly flexible Hydrus Microstent is placed by a doctor using microscopic incisions and advanced equipment. This less invasive approach allows for fewer complications and faster healing times than traditional glaucoma surgery.

About 77% of Hydrus Microstent patients saw a significant reduction in eye pressure and 78% of all patients with a Hydrus Microstent were drop free at 2 years.

The Hydrus Microstent was designed to enhance fluid outflow in multiple ways to help patients to reduce eye pressure, in 3 ways;

  1. Enhancing outflow: Hydrus Microstent is placed in Schlemm’s canal, a part of the drainage system of the eye. Fluid then flows along the canal (via the Hydrus Microstent) and into the eye’s natural outflow channel to reduce eye pressure.
  2. Expanding the eye’s natural fluid pathway: Hydrus Microstent delicately expands the natural width of Schlemm’s canal, allowing for enhanced flow through the eye’s drainage system to help reduce eye pressure.
  3. Engineered to reduce eye pressure: Hydrus Microstent spans approximately 90° within the eye. This coverage ensures that fluid reaches the eye’s drainage system, which carries fluid from Schlemm’s canal to the body’s circulatory system to reduce eye pressure reliably.
