Study Shows MIGS Makes up Nearly Half of Glaucoma Surgical Device Revenue
Micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) stents are quickly becoming the norm. A new study from Market Scope titled “2019 Glaucoma Surgical Device Market Report,” shows that MIGS stents account for almost half of all glaucoma surgical device revenue in 2019. This is an even more impressive feat for the devices considering the loss of revenue that occurred from the Cypass Micro-Stent being recalled nearly a year ago. Alcon pulled Cypass off the market after five-year data revealed a higher rate of cell loss compared to patients who had cataract surgery alone. However, the report said Cypass...
