Durysta Implant for Glaucoma
The Durysta Implant may help glaucoma patients who use eye drops avoid the hassle and cost of daily eye drop use. In order to maintain the best control of glaucoma and prevent vision loss, many patients with glaucoma must be quite disciplines in their use of eye drops to maintain the proper eye pressure or Intraocular Pressure (IOP). For many, glaucoma laser treatment is often helpful in reducing or eliminating glaucoma eye drops but for others eye drop use is part of their daily routine several times each day. Recently a microscopic implant containing a glaucoma eye pressure medication was FDA approved to help glaucoma patients improve their quality of life by reducing the need for eye drops as well as ensuring better consistency and compliance and thus an exciting option for lowering IOP in the treatment of glaucoma and a step in the right direction to reducing blindness related to this common disease.
If you or someone you know is being treated for glaucoma with eye drops, please schedule a glaucoma eye exam and ask about options for glaucoma treatment to help reduce the need for daily eye drops.
