If you have glaucoma and cataracts, iStent is designed to improve your eye’s natural fluid outflow to safely lower eye pressure. The iStent is the smallest medical device to be approved by the FDA and is placed inside your eye during cataract surgery. Once implanted in the eye, the device can help restore normal pressure in the eye and may allow your doctor to reduce or possibly eliminate your need for glaucoma medication.
Dr. Porter offers iStent for the treatment and control of eye pressure associated with mild-to-moderate open angle glaucoma and is available to answer your questions.
