CLASS: Novel Glaucoma Treatment
the IOPtimate™, is a surgical system for the treatment of Glaucoma, which utilizes a CO2 laser technology to significantly reduce internal eye pressure (“IOP”), by restoring the natural fluid percolation without penetrating into the eye.
CLASS: Performed by Prof. Ehud Assia
According to Prof. Assia of Meir Medical Center, Kfar Saba in Israel and the inventor of the system, the system transforms complex and highly risky glaucoma surgery into a safe, elegant and precise laser-assisted procedure.
CLASS: Performed by Prof. Andre Mermoud
For Prof. Mermoud of Clinique de Montchoisi, Lausanne in Switzerland, IOPtima’s CLASS procedure has true advantages over the Trabeculectomy surgery as it offers an excellent safety profile with an ease of use.
CLASS: Perfomed by Dr. Nir Shoham-Hazon
In this video Dr. Nir Shoham Hazon of Barzilai Medical Center Ashkelon in Israel describes the steps of a novel non-penetrating treatment of CO2 laser assisted sclerectomy surgery utilizing the IOPtiMate™ system. “CLASS is proven to be a safe and simple procedure to perform with the potential to become the first line of glaucoma surgery”.
Combined CLASS and Phaco: Performed Dr. Nir Shoham-Hazon
Similar to Trabeculectomy, CLASS can be performed in combination with a phacoemulsification procedure. The combined procedure allows also anterior segment surgeons to provide their patient a safe and effective glaucoma surgery.
CLASS in Pseudophakic Eye: Performed by Prof. Edward Wylegala
According to Prof. Wylegala of the Medical University of Silesia Katowice Poland School of Medicine with the Division of Dentistry in Zabrze CO2 Laser Assisted Sclerectomy Surgery (CLASS) is a unique microinvasive surgical procedure reducing IOP in open angle glaucoma patients with low postoperative complication rate.
Combined CLASS PHACO with suprachoroidal esnoper implant: Performed by Dr. Nir Shoham-Hazon
The ESNOPER scleral implant is indicated for non-penetrating deep sclerectomy (NPDS) and thus far for CO2 Laser Assisted Sclerectomy Surgery (CLASS) in open-angle glaucoma surgery. The ESNOPER scleral implant is a non-reabsorbable implant that provides a fixed, permanent intrascleral space that facilitates the drainage of aqueous humor.
