Beacon In a Blink
Beacon can be implanted with a device insertion process that is engineered with the intent of causing patients little to no discomfort post-surgery.
Beacon is practically invisible to the naked eye, so you have a chance to see without others seeing the device.
Because the aqueous humor drains to the eye’s surface, there is potential that irritated eyes may have relief when the eye is bathed by aqueous humor from the Beacon. Beacon uses microscale geometry to divert fluid at a rate that should feel imperceptible, without being excessive.
Our unique approach to treating glaucoma comes with a theoretical increase in risk of infection, but Beacon is carefully designed to resist bacterial encroachment and infection using a combination of physical and chemical properties. Our eventual aim is to provide patients with revolutionary relief from glaucoma while minimizing risk of infection.
