Before scheduling cataract surgery,
here are 3 things to know:
The Hydrus Microstent is for adult patients undergoing cataract surgery who have mild to moderate primary open-angle glaucoma, a common type of glaucoma.
The Hydrus Microstent is a minimally invasive device that is placed during cataract surgery to help manage your glaucoma. This less invasive approach allows for fewer complications and faster healing times than traditional glaucoma surgery.
Although you won’t be able to feel the Hydrus Microstent once it’s implanted, you’ll know soon how well it is working for you. In the weeks following your procedure, your doctor will test to determine if the pressure in your eye has been lowered.
Talk to your doctor to see if the Hydrus Microstent is right for you.
