The Hydrus Microstent was designed to enhance fluid outflow in multiple ways to help patients achieve predictable outcomes.
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.*
Hydrus Microstent delicately expands the natural width of Schlemm’s canal, allowing for enhanced flow through the eye’s drainage system.
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 and allows pressure in the eye to be lowered reliably.
