Experimental: CyPass Micro-Stent
Subjects receive the CyPass Micro-Stent
Device: CyPass Micro-Stent
The CyPass Micro-Stent is a small tube with a through-lumen designed to redirect aqueous fluid from the front to the back of the eye. The CyPass is implanted in the eye.
- Proportion of Eyes With Intraocular Pressure (IOP) Reduction of ≥ 20% at 12 Months Postoperatively Who Were on Fewer or the Same Number of Ocular Hypotensive Medications as Compared With Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline; Month 12 postoperative ]IOP (fluid pressure inside the eye) was assessed using Goldmann applanation tonometry and reported in millimeters mercury (mmHg). A reduction in IOP from baseline indicates an improvement. Proportion of eyes is reported as a percentage.
- Proportion of Eyes With Achievement of Target IOP With and Without Use of Ocular Hypotensive Medication [ Time Frame: Month 12 postoperative ]Target IOP was defined as ≥ 6 mmHg and ≤ 21 mmHg. Proportion of eyes is reported as a percentage.
- Mean Number of Topical IOP-Lowering Medications Used in Comparison With Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 12 postoperative ]The number of unique glaucoma medications was recorded. The mean number of topical IOP-lowering medications was computed by dividing the total number of medications used (the numerator) by the total number of subjects who reported on medication use at the visit.
