Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Using the Ex-PRESS Mini Glaucoma Shunt (Op-tonol Ltd., Neve Ilan, Israel) for the surgical treatment of glaucoma is now possible with the assistance of an injection system. The author believes the procedure is safe and effective in lowering intraocular pressure from baseline. This article discusses the technique and provides pearls for surgical success.
