Treatment of glaucoma involves lowering intraocular pressure, which can be achieved through several methods (e.g. topical medication, oral medication, surgery). This paper studies the use of stent implantations for pressure regulation, and proposes a direct illumination method to facilitate the insertion procedure. A proof-of-concept is demonstrated on a cadaver eye.
