Focused ultrasound present several advantages such as the non-invasiveness and the precision of the treated zone.
EYE TECH CARE has managed to miniaturize the device in order to adapt it to the ocular anatomy.
► UCP process enables to heat tissues deep in the eye without the need for an incision
► With focused beams, a very small portion of tissues is heated ( on the order of millimeters)
► The temperature of tissues at the focus point will rise up to 65 and 85°C, coagulating the tissues
UCP can be used in different types of glaucoma, at different stages of the disease.
Patients with primary or secondary glaucoma
Patients with open angle or angle closure glaucoma
UCP can be performed after other techniques
Multiple UCP treatments are possible if needed with no increased risk of complication
Other techniques can still be performed after UCP treatment
