The CyPass Micro-Stent represents an exciting new option for patients with mild-to-moderate open-angle glaucoma undergoing cataract surgery.
The stent has a single piece design and is 0.25” (6.35 mm) long. The inner diameter of the stent is 0.012” (0.30 mm) and the outer diameter is 0.017” (0.43 mm). and designed to be implanted at the time of cataract surgery to lower eye pressure in patients with open¬angle glaucoma. The device can also be used when eye pressures are not adequately controlled with eye drops or laser, as an alternative to more invasive operations.
