Complications of Glaucoma Stents

Glaucoma stents are a recent innovation to improve outflow of aqueous from the eye and control intraocular pressure. There is a certain learning curve involved, however in general the devices are straight forward to insert, earning their acronym MIGS or microinvasive glaucoma surgery. Surgery can at times be challenging due to poor visualisation of the anatomy, difficult access or previous surgical procedures. Strategies need to be formulated to overcome such times of adversity.
