There have been many recent advancements in glaucoma surgery. Traditionally, glaucoma surgeries were invasive procedures prone to moderate amounts of risks, complications, and need for repeat surgeries. In recent years, newer techniques and devices have emerged that allow options for IOP (intraocular pressure) control that do not require more eye drops or invasive surgery.
Durysta is a tiny, dissolvable implant placed in your eye that helps to lower eye pressure (IOP) in patients with open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
- The first and only FDA-approved dissolvable ocular implant to reduce eye pressure in people with open angle glaucoma or high eye pressure (ocular hypertension)
- Just 1 Durysta implant reduced eye pressure for 15 weeks in clinical studies
- As Durysta dissolves, it automatically releases medicine to help reduce high pressure inside your eye
