If you’ve been managing your glaucoma symptoms with medication, and now are preparing for cataract surgery, iStent® may be an ideal option for you. iStent® is a tiny implant that’s helped thousands of people with glaucoma successfully manage their intraocular pressure. By taking advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity during cataract surgery, you can help address both of these conditions at the same time.
iStent® is not only the world’s smallest medical implant 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. The first MIGS device approved by the FDA, today iStent® has been implanted in over 200,000 eyes around the world, with more and more patients benefiting from the iStent® procedure every day.
