MicroPulse® Transscleral Laser Therapy Will be Discussed in Various Presentations and Educational Events at ESCRS 2019 in Paris, France > IRIDEX



Mountain View, Calif. September 12, 2019 -- IRIDEX Corporation (NASDAQ: IRIX), a provider of innovative ophthalmic laser-based medical products for the treatment of glaucoma and retinal diseases, announced today that its patented MicroPulse® laser therapy will be featured prominently in research presented at the 2019 European Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) meeting, to be held in Paris, France on Friday, September 13 through Wednesday, September 18. MicroPulse Transscleral Laser Therapy (TLT) is a non-incisional, laser-based procedure used to treat a wide range of glaucoma cases. More than 100,000 procedures have been performed in 60 countries since 2015.

“MicroPulse Transscleral Cyclophotocoagulation is changing the way glaucoma specialist address glaucoma, and the plethora of abstracts showcasing this procedure at ESCRS offers additional proof that its safety profile continues to validate the favorable results of non-incisional glaucoma treatment,” said Dr. K. Sheng Lim, Head of the Glaucoma Service at St. Thomas’ Hospital and Associate Professor, Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine at King’s College London.

At ESCRS 2019, there will be several opportunities for attendees to learn about the safety, efficacy, and clinical versatility of MicroPulse TLT for glaucoma within the ESCRS program, at a wet lab, a symposium, and at the IRIDEX booth (#C125).
