BACKGROUND/AIMS To evaluate the supraciliary space (SCS) with anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging after CyPass Micro-Stent implantation. METHODS The SCS was imaged with OCT after microstent implantation at 1, 6 months, and 1 year. Images were graded on a scale of 0-4 for morphological features indicative of fluid presence within, or drainage through, the SCS. RESULTS 35 patients underwent ab-interno microstent implantation. Mean age was 68.6±10.2 years. Baseline mean… CONTINUE READING
