First published Friday, January 4, 2013
The University awarded a contract for Baerveldt™ Glaucoma implants to Abbott Medical Optics, Santa Ana, CA, for an estimated $100,000.
Purchase Baerveldt™ Glaucoma implants as based upon surgeon preference, they have unique specifications that justifies their usage.

The Baerveldt® glaucoma implant is popular because it affords the combination of one-quadrant installation and a large surface area. Specifically, the 350 mm2 Baerveldt® Glaucoma Implants have been deemed as effective treatment for intermediate-term intraocular pressure (IOP) control in patients with refractory glaucoma. Additionally, the Baerveldt® glaucoma implant has been shown to be effective in lowering the IOP in patients with intractable glaucomas. Hypotony and other complications are common, which also have been reported in other non valved glaucoma drainage implants.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the item or service is copyrighted or patented and is not available except from the holder of the copyright or patent.
