XEN Glaucoma Implant Video

posted by: Janet Swartz, EdD

During a recent webinar, Dr. Jim Thimons discussed the XEN Glaucoma Implant, developed by AqueSys, Inc., an Allergan affiliate. The XEN is a permanent, collagan-derived, gelatin implant that can be implanted independently of cataract surgery to reduce IOP. There was a video in his presentation that did not work on WebEx. If you would like to see the short, one-minute animation showing how the device is implanted, click on the triangle in the middle of the screen below (there is no sound on the video).
