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