1.1 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. Find out what only in research means on the NICE interventional procedures guidance page.
1.2 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.
1.3 NICE may update the guidance on publication of further evidence.
