SANTEN IS WORKING TO BRING A NEW ERA OF PREDICTABILITY AND SUSTAINABILITY TO GLAUCOMA SURGERY

Hear it from your peers

Innovative devices that deliver predictable, sustainable outcomes have the potential to change the way we manage glaucoma by allowing for a more proactive approach to surgery.

What is your experience?

Answer a question and see how your response matches up with your peers’

What is the greatest unmet need in device innovation that if met would give you the confidence to proactively perform surgery for more of your glaucoma patients?

Device innovation could initiate a new era of proactive glaucoma surgery

PREDICTABILITY

  • A minimally invasive device would help ensure as little trauma to the eye as possible, expediting healing and patient recovery1
  • Subconjunctival drainage has been a proven method for decades to achieve target IOP2

SUSTAINABILITY

  • Innovative device design would help maximize outflow while minimizing hypotony3,4
  • Biocompatible material that resists degradation could help deliver more-sustainable results3

Santen is dedicated to advancing proactive glaucoma care with surgical-device innovations.
