Abstract

While conventional glaucoma filtration surgery provides excellent intraocular pressure (IOP) lowering effect, this comes at the expense of significant risks. As the physiology of the suprachoroidal space has become better understood, its potential as a source for aqueous drainage has generated significant interest. This has resulted in the creation of several suprachoroidal glaucoma devices with excellent IOP lowering ability and a much more favorable side effect profile.
