- Recommendation ID
Evidence on the safety and efficacy of high-intensity focused ultrasound for glaucoma is inadequate in quality and quantity. Therefore, this procedure should only be used in the context of research.
- Any explanatory notes
Research should ideally take the form of randomised controlled trials comparing this procedure with standard therapies and should report safety events and long-term outcomes.
NICE may update the guidance on publication of further evidence.
