Ex-Press Mini Glaucoma Shunt: The New Age Small Incision Glaucoma Surgery

The Ex-Press Mini Glaucoma Shunt was originally developed by Optonol, Ltd. (Neve Ilan, Israel) for implantation under the conjunctiva for controlling intraocular pressure (IOP). This biocompatible device is almost 3 mm long with an external diameter of approximately 400 microns. It is a non-valved, MRI compatible, stainless steel device with a 50 micron lumen. It has an external disc at one end and a spur-like extension on the other to prevent extrusion.
