At a Glance
• Micropulse transscleral cyclophotocoagulation (MP-TSCPC) has proven to be a safe, effective and reliable approach for lowering IOP
• Unlike other interventions, MP-TSCPC delivers energy in a 31.3 percent duty cycle, allowing tissue to cool between each application, so there is minimal impact on target tissue and a reduced risk of injury to adjacent ocular tissue
• MP-TSCPC can be used early in the disease course and requires minimal medication, reducing the reliance on anti-inflammatory drops post-procedure
• It can also be used on a wide range of glaucoma severity, not just those in the most advanced stages of disease progression.
