Clinical results

Clinical studies have been conducted by various medical teams worldwide, providing consistent data on safety and efficacy

Efficacy

UCP has been used worldwide to treat more than 10 000 patients

Average IOP reduction at 12 months

Based on 6-sector protocol

Success rate of 70% at 12 months
 

* success is defined as IOP reduction > 20% and final IOP > 5 mmHg without supplemental hypotensive medications

Efficacy – Multiple treatments

Complete success: IOP < 21mmHg
UCP treatment was repeated at 4 months if needed
 
Population: 40 patients, 35% of POAG, 42% with previous filtering surgery, 65% non POAG, 7.5% angle closure, 20% exfoliative, 30% neovascular, 7.5% other
