2021 Kiawah Eye Meeting Sees Record Attendance

2021 Kiawah Eye Meeting Sees Record Attendance
Dr. Matthew Clary, from The Eye Center in Columbia, delivered the first lecture of this year’s annual Kiawah Eye Meeting, where he spoke about the DURYSTA glaucoma implant.

Columbia, S.C, Aug 26, 2021 — Recently, Dr. Matthew Clary, from The Eye Center of Columbia, had the honor of delivering the first lecture of the 2021 Kiawah Eye Meeting. This three-day event, held at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort, is an annual Continuing Medical Education (CME) symposium where leading physicians, researchers, and industry representatives discuss the latest advances in the field of ophthalmology. Last year’s conference was canceled due to the coronavirus epidemic, but resumed this year and saw record attendance.  

In his lecture, Dr. Clary spoke on the benefits and successes of DURYSTA in their patients. Many glaucoma patients have difficulty administering their pressure-reducing eye drops properly, or suffer side effects from their eye drops. Without daily use of eye drops, these patients are at a much higher risk of vision loss.

The DURYSTA glaucoma implant provides an alternative to eye drops. This tiny implant, measuring just 1mm in length, is inserted painlessly into the eye. As the implant slowly biodegrades over a 6-12 month period, it releases a glaucoma medication that reduces pressure within the eye. Thanks to DURYSTA, the first implant of its kind approved by the FDA, drops are no longer needed to deliver glaucoma medication. Patients, along with their families and physicians, can now be confident that medication is being delivered consistently on a daily basis.

If you or your loved one struggle with either the administration or side effects of eye drops for glaucoma, please contact The Eye Center to discuss if DURYSTA can help reduce or eliminate the need for drops. Our doctors provide the best glaucoma treatment in Columbia.
