Sight Sciences Announces Long-Term Safety and Effectiveness Data of Standalone Use of the OMNI® Surgical System in Patients with Open Angle Glaucoma

Three-year, standalone (not combined with cataract surgery) data shows the non-implantable minimally invasive glaucoma surgery effectively reduces intraocular pressure and reduces need for IOP-lowering medications in open-angle glaucoma patients

Excerpt from the Press Release:

MENLO PARK, Calif., Aug. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sight Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: SGHT), an eyecare technology company focused on developing and commercializing innovative solutions intended to transform care and improve patients’ lives, today announced 36-month post-surgery follow-up results of the OMNI® Surgical System. The data demonstrates that the OMNI Surgical System delivers safe, consistent, and durable results in adult patients with open-angle glaucoma (OAG) on a standalone basis.

The study showed that canaloplasty followed by trabeculotomy using the OMNI® Surgical System achieved a mean reduction in intraocular pressure (IOP) of at least 20 percent for all 26 patients (38 eyes) at 36 months follow-up. At 12, 24 and 36 months after surgery, patients’ mean preoperative IOP post medication washout decreased from 24.6±3.2 mmHg to 14.5±1.7 mmHg, 14.2±2.0 mmHg and 15.0±1.9, respectively. The mean number of IOP-lowering medications was reduced from 1.9±0.7 to 0.4±0.6, 0.6±0.7 and 0.5±0.7 at 12, 24 and 36-months. The post operative IOP and medication use reduction at 12 months remained consistent over three years, suggesting robust durable effectiveness of the OMNI Surgical System when used as a standalone intervention either in phakic or pseudophakic eyes. Only a minimal number of adverse events were reported, all of which resolved without any intervention except one eye required secondary IOP lowering intervention.

“As we continue to evaluate this patient group with the OMNI Surgical System, the results consistently show the minimally invasive procedure has the potential to offer long-standing benefits for patients with open-angle glaucoma,” said Karsten Klabe, MD, Principal Investigator, Head Surgeon of Breyer, Kaymak & Klabe Augenchirurgie. “Most patients experienced an IOP reduction of at least 20 percent and required significantly less medication, meeting the study’s objective. By effectively reducing IOP and the medication burden, the OMNI Surgical System is transforming how glaucoma is cared for in both combination cataract and standalone glaucoma patients.”
