The XEN® Gel Stent

The XEN® Gel StentKung Eye Center, with offices in Staten Island, NY and East Brunswick, NJ offers patients with open-angle glaucoma the XEN® Gel Stent, which is designed to lower high eye pressure. This stent is an excellent solution for patients that previous failed laser treatments and/or if eye drop medications were insufficient.

The XEN® Gel Stent is a minimally invasive, permanent procedure that works by draining fluid through a small channel , which in turn lowers eye pressure. The Stent is so small, it’s hardly visible with the human eye, measuring about the size of an eyelash.

This revolutionary step forward in technology can help glaucoma patients avoid surgical procedures such as tube shunts or trabeculotomy. The XEN® Gel Stent is an outpatient procedure that offers patients suffering from glaucoma, a fast recovery time with proven results.
