Malpositioned Hydrus Microstent


A new patient presented to Temple University Hospital and was found to have correctopia. Gonioscopy revealed a Hydrus microstent improperly positioned with multiple millimeters protruding out of Schlemm canal into the anterior chamber with associated peripheral anterior synechiae. The stent can be seen nasally along the limbus on the external photograph.
