Abstract/Summary Commercially available for over a decade, the Ex-Press miniature glaucoma shunt has been implanted in more than 75,000 eyes. This biocompatible device shunts aqueous from the anterior chamber to an intrascleral plane and then into a filtration bleb similar fashion to that of a trabeculectomy, but without the need for sclerectomy or iridectomy. This theoretically simplifies glaucoma filtration surgery and possibly offers a more consistent drainage operation for the general ophthalmologist. We review the surgical implantation of an Ex-Press device and summarize the clinical outcomes, complications, and potential limitations of this novel device.
