Dr Steven Vold Performs First Hydrus Glaucoma Procedure In United States

Michelle Smith moved to Northwest Arkansas expecting to learn how to call the HOGS, when her husband Mark was named as the Arkansas Razorback Football Defensive Backs Coach, but she had no idea the move would lead to her being the first person in the United States to receive one the most advanced treatments in glaucoma care, the Hydrus® Microstent. Michelle’s new glaucoma sub-specialist, Dr. Steven Vold of Vold Vision in Northwest Arkansas, was chosen as the first surgeon in the country to implant the device after its approval by the FDA in August 2018, and together they are launching a campaign to raise awareness for glaucoma.
