What is CyPass® Micro-Stent?
CyPass® Micro-Stent is a microinvasive glaucoma surgical device that you can have inserted at the time of cataract surgery to help lower your eye pressure. This very small device is positioned just below the surface of the eye after your cataracts are removed and your new lens is placed.
How CyPass® Micro-Stent works
Think of the fluid buildup in your eye as a clogged drain. CyPass® Micro-Stent is like a tiny pipe that keeps the pathway open, so the fluid can drain the way it’s supposed to. The device also has lots of little holes on its surface, to increase the drainage even more.
