The FIH trial is a prospective, open, international, multi-centre study which has recruited 25 patients with mild-to-moderate, open angle glaucoma uncontrolled by topical hypotensive medications for implantation with a MINIject device. Patient enrolment occurred in centres between June and October 2017.

Subsequent safety and performance will be measured at 12 and 24 months post-surgery.
