If you need cataract surgery and you have glaucoma, don’t worry. Frantz EyeCare is proud to introduce the latest advancement in glaucoma patient care, The CyPass® Micro-Stent. The CyPass helps patients with mild to moderate primary open-angle glaucoma to reduce or even eliminate the need for prescription eye drops to control their intraocular pressure (IOP).
The CyPass Micro-Stent is a tiny tube that is implanted into the eye of a patient with glaucoma during cataract surgery.
It is precisely placed just below the surface of the eye to create a new pathway for the outflow of fluid helping reduce the IOP.
If glaucoma is left untreated and the IOP builds up, it can eventually lead to optic nerve damage and even blindness.
The doctors at Frantz EyeCare are world-class leaders in glaucoma diagnosis, treatment and management. To schedule an evaluation today, call (239) 418-0999 or click here.
