What has NICE said?

Trabecular stent bypass microsurgery for open-angle glaucoma is safe enough and works well enough for use in the NHS.

What does this mean for me?

Your health professional should fully explain what is involved in having this procedure, and discuss the possible benefits and risks with you. You should also be told how to find more information about the procedure. All of this should happen before you decide whether you want to have this procedure or not.

Other comments from NICE

NICE said the evidence about this procedure is mostly for 1 device, although there are several devices available.

Your healthcare team

The procedure should only be done by clinicians with specific training in trabecular stent bypass microsurgery.
