Next-Generation Glaucoma Therapy

Delivering Effective, Safe, & Longer-Term Treatment


The Technology


Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide, yet current treatment options are suboptimal for patients and providers.

ELT (Excimer Laser Trabeculotomy) micro-invasive glaucoma surgery was first used clinically in 1997 - and is absolutely implant free.

ELT treats the pathology leading to open-angle glaucoma exactly where it occurs by considerably increasing the permeability of the trabecular meshwork, with lower risks than other treatment methods.


The Facts

  • ELT is a simple out-patient procedure completed in < 10 minutes.

  • ELT Technology creates microscopic channels via a non-thermal laser, without scarring.

  • ELT reduces intraocular pressure (IOP), a crucial intervention that aims to prevent the devastating effects of glaucoma progression.

  • Daily eye drops have low compliance & tolerability.

  • ELT is safe & effective, with market-leading clinical outcomes.

  • ELT shows 75% improvement in visual acuity and sustained IOP reduction for at least 5 years.



ELT is next-generation treatment, positioned to disrupt the medical industry.
