The treatment probe is placed on the eye using a positioning cone.
The transducers are placed at regular intervals on the circumference of the treatment probe and oriented in order to create focal zones consisting of elliptic cylinders superimposed on the ciliary body.
The EYEOP-PACK product range is available in three sizes: 11, 12 or 13mm diameter.
The EyeOP1 control unit generates the ultrasound energy. It is compact, ergonomic, and simple to use. The touch screen enables the operator to set the parameters and to control the procedure throughout the treatment. The simple tree structure of the user interface provides for intuitive use of the control unit.
UCP is a non-invasive technique that utilizes high-intensity focused ultrasound to provide targeted, controlled and gentle thermal coagulation of the ciliary body by specialized, miniaturized transducers to deliver and focus the ultrasound.
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound enables
Precision through ultra-small spot size allows accurate targeting of the ciliary body
Controlled temperature-time curve allows to spare the surrounding tissues
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound precision through ultra-small spot size
UCP can be used for a broad spectrum of patients, from naïve-of-surgery patients under maximal hypotensive medication to moderate and advanced glaucoma cases
UCP can be used for open angle as well as angle closure glaucoma, and for primary and secondary glaucoma
Multiple UCP treatments are possible, if needed, with no added risk of complications
UCP Flex allows to titrate the dose of therapeutic ultrasound according to patient’s needs.
Procedure is quick (less than 5 minutes)
Light anesthesia protocol (no pain if anesthesia is done properly; the eye can be painful the first day but then goes back to normal very quickly)
Transient visual impairment may occur during the first weeks (astigmatism or mydriasis for example)
Eased post-operative care
