Trabecular bypass was first used as a surgical treatment for glaucoma more than 100 years ago and aims to circumvent the trabecular meshwork, thought to be the main site of aqueous humor outflow resistance. The emerging field of microinvasive glaucoma surgery has brought a new ab interno trabecular microbypass stent through the U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approval process, and data from long-term randomized prospective trials have shown the safety and intraocular pressure-lowering value of trabecular microbypass. This review discusses the historical evolution of trabecular microbypass and describes new and forthcoming surgical options along with available clinical safety and efficacy data.
