Implant-free glaucoma treatment with lasting results.

Glaucoma Is Treatable

Glaucoma is a disease that damages the optic nerve, which carries images from our eyes to our brain. The optic nerve functions best when the intraocular pressure (IOP) inside your eye is normal. Patients with glaucoma require a decrease in intraocular pressure to treat the disease and avoid further loss of vision.

For patients with glaucoma who also have cataracts, ELIOS is an implant-free intervention that can be performed during their cataract surgery and is backed by long-lasting results.

ELIOS Combined with Cataract Surgery Is Safe and Effective

Cataract surgery is amongst the most routinely performed surgical procedures in the world while boasting one of the highest safety and success profiles of all surgeries. Post-surgery, ELIOS is very similar to routine cataract surgery in terms of medication, recovery time, and visual improvement.2 ELIOS can also be performed on its own with the same safety expectations.5

Many glaucoma treatments require a micro-implant to be placed inside the eye. ELIOS avoids the need for an implant by using laser light energy to create microchannels within the trabecular meshwork inside the eye. The ten microchannels support natural outflow and lower pressure without leaving anything behind.1

What to Expect

ELIOS can be combined elegantly with cataract surgery. Either before or after the removal of cataracts, surgeons will create the microchannels designed to address glaucoma.

Patients should expect their eye to feel scratchy and their vision to be slightly blurred immediately after cataract surgery. This is normal and will gradually improve. Your eyecare specialist will be able to advise on any specific aftercare required.
