A tethered cannula having at least two curved sections for implantation into an eye and a method for implanting the cannula in the eye. The cannula can withstand ever present and changing rotational forces from eye movement and mechanical forces from the movement of the subject. The cannula can be connected to implantable or tetherable devices that are too large, heavy, or obstructive to attach directly to the eye, such as an intraocular pressure sensor or infusion pump.
