Safer Glaucoma Treatment Alternative

iStent® Glaucoma Treatment

The iStent is placed during cataract surgery to relieve Intraocular Pressure (IOP). Essentially it is a small tube used to allow fluids to pass. If you’re the right candidate for the iStent you’ll experience a reduce dependency on glaucoma medication and corrective lenses.

Smallest Medical Device Approved by FDA

You Won’t See or Feel It

Treat your open-angle glaucoma in a way that will make you forget it ever existed. With the iStent, patients will not see or feel the device once placed in their eye. You can have an iStent placed during your cataract surgery. It only makes sense to take care of your glaucoma and face one less eye concern.

Cut Your Eye Drop Dependence

Reduced Need For Daily Eye Drops

You will spend the rest of your life putting one, two or even three different kinds of drops in every day. Unfortunately, all of these drops will not only be inconvenient but potentially very expensive. By having an iStent placed the pressure in your eyes will be controlled, eliminating the need for multiple eye drop applications.

Fewer Risk Than Traditional Glaucoma Management

Cut Back on Challenges and Problems

You won’t need to depend on glasses or glaucoma medication after placement of the iStent as it controls the IOP of the eye. Unlike other glaucoma management solutions, the iStent results in fewer problems for you following the procedure.

Avoid the Hassle of Wearing Glasses

Reduced Dependency on Glasses

iStent will allow you to see more clearly and escape the aggravation that comes with wearing glasses. The iStent controls your glaucoma by creating a drainage passway and reducing pressure in the eye. You will likely be able to see without glasses, or with a lowered dependency on glasses, following the placement of the iStent.

FAQ

Read some common questions about our iStent® Glaucoma Treatment.

Where is the iStent placed? 

The iStent is placed in Schlemm’s canal, a placement that allows for drainage and proper management of pressure within the eye. It is placed through an incision made in the cornea.

How long will my vision be blurry after an iStent procedure? 

You experience may vary from other patients, but expect to notice blurred vision for up to two weeks following the procedure. You might experience swelling of the eye or the appearance of irritation as well. Get in contact with your ophthalmologist if your vision remains blurry for more than two weeks following your procedure.

How does iStent work? 

The iStent creates an area where the pressure can be released in the eye to keep blockages or clogs from building up. This creates a natural flow in the eyes. This device manages intraocular pressure (IOP) and cuts back on the need for glaucoma-controlling medications.
