How We Address Glaucoma

Glaucoma affects nearly 80 million people worldwide and is a leading cause of vision loss and blindness.1 This progressive disease can have a life-changing effect on patients.

Today, the only way to limit glaucoma progression and the effects on vision is to lower the pressure inside the eye. To achieve this, prescription eye drops, permanent implants, or surgery that removes tissue are used to lower eye pressure.

The ELIOS procedure offers an implant-free, minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) option that creates precise microscopic channels inside the eye that may increase the flow of fluid and lower eye pressure.2
