    Flexible glaucoma procedure serves wide variety of patients

    CLASS procedure outcomes effective in reducing IOP, keeping better visual acuity

    Dr. IzquierdoAs the population ages, the number of people with glaucoma continues to rise, creating an even greater demand for effective therapies to treat it.

    Scientists, physicians, and industry have responded to this challenge, and the past decade has seen the development of a number of therapies meant to lower pressure and improve patient’s quality of life by decreasing the burden of topical medications. 

    The group of micro-invasive glaucoma surgeries (MIGS) now available has made progress in combining glaucoma and cataract procedures for patients with comorbid disease. However, these MIGS devices are not always available in all countries, nor do many of them offer sufficient IOP control for more severe patients.

    Carbon dioxide (CO2) laser-assisted sclerectomy surgery (CLASS) is a successful, less invasive, and more simple option for a wide range of glaucoma patients.
