This clinical trial compares two implantable devices intended to lower the pressure inside the eye of glaucoma patients. One of the two devices will be implanted immediately following cataract surgery and the placement of a posterior chamber intra-ocular lens.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Intraocular pressure at Month 12 [ Time Frame: Twelve months ]
    The primary effectiveness endpoint for this study is IOP at 12 months following surgery.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of patients requiring supplemental medication. [ Time Frame: Month 12 ]
    The proportion of patients requiring supplemental medication for pressure control.

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of eyes with IOP greater than 5 and less than or equal to 19 mmHg. [ Time Frame: Month 12 ]
    The proportion of eyes with IOP greater than 5 and less than or equal to 19 mmHg at 12 months after surgery.

  • Loss of best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) [ Time Frame: Month 12 ]
    Safety outcomes include loss of lines of BCVA, results of slit lamp and fundus examination, and the incidence of complications and adverse events.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Hydrus Microstent
Patients randomized to the Hydrus Microstent
Device: Hydrus Microstent
Device inserted into Schlemm's canal to enhance aqueous flow from the anterior chamber.
Active Comparator: iStent Trabecular Micro Bypass
Patients randomized to the iStent Trabecular Micro Bypass
Device: iStent Trabecular Micro Bypass
Device inserted into Schlemm's canal to enhance aqueous flow from the anterior chamber.

Detailed Description:
This is a prospective, multicenter, single-masked, randomized clinical trial comparing Cataract Extraction (CE) + Hydrus Microstent to CE surgery + iStent implant for the reduction of intraocular pressure in patients with a positive diagnosis of primary open angle glaucoma, pseudoexfoliative glaucoma, or pigmentary dispersion glaucoma with an operable cataract. Eligible patients will be scheduled for cataract surgery. At the conclusion of successful cataract surgery and the placement of a posterior-chamber IOL, qualified subjects will be randomized to receive either the Hydrus Microstent or the iStent implant. Post-operative follow-up visits will be conducted at regular intervals.

Ages Eligible for Study:   21 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)

Inclusion Criteria:

  • A diagnosis of primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), Pseudoexfoliative (PXG) glaucoma, or Pigmentary dispersion glaucoma (PDG)
  • An operable age-related cataract with BCVA of 20/40 or worse, eligible for phacoemulsification.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Forms of primary or secondary glaucoma not listed above
  • Prior glaucoma surgery in the study eye
