Mechanism of action

UCP allows for a controlled and gentle coagulation of the ciliary body

UCP allows the decrease of aqueous humour production by partial coagulation of the ciliary body.

Gentle coagulation of ciliary body

Secretion of aqueous humour via epithelial cells in the ciliary body
Epithelial cells removed but blood-aqueous barrier preserved

Blood aqueous barrier preserved

After UCP treatment, double-layer epithelial cells producing aqueous humour have been removed but blood aqueous barrier remains

The non-destructive nature of the procedure makes it possible to consider multiple treatments when necessary.
