HFDS stands for High Frequency Deep Sclerotomy. In micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS), HFDS creates direct access from the anterior chamber to the Schlemm’s canal and further into the sclera. The resistance of the trabecular meshwork is thus bypassed. The abee glaucoma tip is inserted through 1.2 mm paracentesis and, by means of diathermy output, it creates six small sclerotomy pockets in the iridocorneal angle, ensuring improved outflow of aqueous fluid.
HFDS can be used individually and can also be ideally combined with cataract surgery. HFDS is characterised by a very short intervention time. Bleb formation is prevented, and so is fibroblast movement to the sclerotomy. Moreover, there are no corneal scars. Oertli’s High Frequency Deep Sclerotomy boasts excellent long-term results. If required, a further HFDS intervention can be made to optimise results.

The material reacts to temperature fluctuations. In the cold, the material hardens, so to attain the most realistic training experience, the artificial eye should be stored at room temperature. If possible, you should also protect the container from sunlight since the artificial eye is mostly made of photoreactive 3D-printed materials.
