Enquire

High Frequency Deep Sclerotomy (HFDS) glaucoma surgery is a new ab interno procedure to lower the intraocular pressure in open-angle glaucoma. Using high frequency energy, six small pockets are formed in the iridocorneal angle, which significantly reduce the outflow resistance for aqueous humour.

Features and benefits:

  • Ideal in combination with cataract surgery or as individual application
  • Very short intervention time
  • Excellent long-term results
  • No bleb-formation, no corneal scars
  • Surgery can be repeated if necessary
  • Very low complication rate
