Primary open-angle glaucoma is a progressive ocular disease affecting adults and associated with visual field defect. The aim of its treatment is to lower the ocular pressure by means of ocular drops, laser or surgery. To date, traditional surgical techniques still remain quite invasive, but recent research efforts have been made with a view to develop minimally invasive techniques. The Xen Gel Stent is one of them. It allows a safe and efficient lowering of ocular pressure by creating a sub-conjunctival flow, following an ab interno procedure that highly preserves the architecture of the treated eye. [less ▲]
