Making the decision to protect your vision is an important one, and you probably have a lot of questions. Here are some of the most common questions people have about CyPass® Micro-Stent.
CyPass® Micro-Stent is inserted in your eye through the same incision used for your cataract surgery, just below the surface of your eye. You can learn more about cataracts and the benefits of cataract surgery at mycataracts.com.
Your eye surgeon may ask you to stop or start taking certain medications for a few days before your surgery. Talk to your eye surgeon about any other recommendations.
Your eye surgeon will give you eye drops to speed up the healing process and to prevent infection. You’ll recover at home after surgery. Typically, your eye surgeon will examine you the following day. Your eye pressure may fluctuate the first few days after surgery, but recovery may be different for each individual. Be sure to ask your eye surgeon so you can fully understand what the recovery process is like.
CyPass® Micro-Stent will be placed at the very outer edge of your iris, which is the colored part of your eye, so you won’t be able to see it once it is implanted.
