Express Mini Shunts
The Ex-PRESS mini shunt is a straightforward procedure, in which you divert the fluid through an extremely small tube to the outside of the eye. Although the device is as small as a grain of rice, it acts just like a heart stent keeping a pathway open so blood or fluid can successfully go around the blockage. The Ex-PRESS provides precise control of the amount of fluid that is allowed to flow out helping the eye maintain a healthy level of internal pressure.
The Express Mini-Shunt is a device that is available as an alternate to traditional glaucoma filtering (Trabeculectomy) surgery.
