For patients that have been diagnosed with glaucoma and are now preparing for cataract surgery, iStent® may be an option to help reduce intraocular pressure.
The iStent® is a tiny implant that is inserted into the eye during cataract surgery. This implant helps patients with glaucoma manage their intraocular pressure by creating a permanent bypass through the primary blockage site.
This implant is covered by Medicare and most private insurance companies.
Advantages of iStent®
Works continually to improve the natural flow of fluid in your eyes
Improves the eye’s natural outflow to safely lower the intraocular pressure
Following surgery, most patients are able to maintain normal eye pressure
Smallest Implant in the World is FDA Approved
