Brief Summary:
Study to assess safety and performance of MINIject SO627 in patients with open angle glaucoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Glaucoma, Open-Angle Glaucoma Eye Device: MINIject CS627 implant Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of MINI SO627 and IOP (Intra- ocular pressure) lowering effects with or without the use of glaucoma medications. The procedure will be a stand alone surgery. Patient follow up with several examinations up to 24 months after surgery.

The primary endpoint is the reduction in medicated mean diurnal IOP at 6 months follow up compared to medicated diurnal IOP at baseline visit.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: MINIject CS627 implant
MINIject 627 implant is used to reduce intra-ocular pressure in the eye. It is implanted through a minimally-invasive glaucoma surgical intervention in a stand alone procedure.
Device: MINIject CS627 implant

MINI SO627 is an integrated system comprising a minimally-invasive Glaucoma Drainage Implant (CS627) and a single operator delivery tool.

The delivery tool is a single-use tool, designed for inserting the CS627 implant into the suprachoroidal space in the eye.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. medicated diurnal IOP [ Time Frame: 6 months post surgery ]
    Change in medicated diurnal IOP
