  3. Ab interno supraciliary microstent insertion with phacoemulsification for primary open-angle glaucoma (IPG605)

    October 2018: The device used in this procedure (CyPass) has been withdrawn by the manufacturer Alcon, because of concerns about its long-term safety. Further details can be found in the Voluntary Field Safety Notice issued by Alcon.
