Your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to treat glaucoma and cataracts at the same time. If you have been managing your glaucoma with medication, and are now preparing for cataract surgery, iStent may be an ideal option for you.
iStent is not only the world’s smallest medical device known to be implanted in the human body—it also started a revolution in glaucoma treatment as the first Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) device.
Implanted during cataract surgery, iStent is a tiny device that has helped thousands of people with glaucoma manage their intraocular pressure. iStent is designed to reduce eye pressure, which can prevent the progression of glaucoma, and may allow your doctor to reduce your glaucoma medication.
To help control the increased pressure in your eye associated with glaucoma, iStent creates a bypass between the front part of your eye and its natural drainage pathway to restore your eye’s natural ability to drain fluid.
iStent is gently inserted in your eye during cataract surgery. Once inserted, you will not be able to see or feel the device.
Taking advantage of a once-in-a- lifetime opportunity. Adding iStent to your cataract surgery can provide a number of benefits.
