The Allergan Beyond conference was held in Sydney on the 21-22 July 2018. An eminent group of world leaders in glaucoma was convened to present the latest information on MIGS, in particular the Xen Gel Stent.
The XEN® Gel Stent is a surgical implant consisting of a 6mm long gelatin stent designed to lower high eye pressure in open-angle glaucoma patients where previous surgical treatment has failed and/or medications alone were insufficient (also known as refractory glaucoma).
Dr Ike Ahmed from Toronto Canada, widely regarded as a 'guru' of MIGS, was present to pass on some invaluable tips on the use of the Xen stent and his views on the use of this and other MIGS devices.
