New Freedom for Patients with Glaucoma & Cataracts

Jul 10, 2016 — by susand | Comments (0)

Now our patients with both cataracts and glaucoma have a new option, the iStent®. The iStent is an advanced, minimally invasive device designed to reduce pressure from right-angle glaucoma.  iStent is the smallest medical device ever approved by the FDA and is placed in the eye during cataract surgery. It is so tiny that the iStent can’t be seen or felt after surgery, but it will be continuously working to help reduce eye pressure. “I see patients every day who forget to take their glaucoma medication drops,” said Dr. Francis Clark. “Glaucoma can cause blindness, and I’m happy to be able to provide a new treatment option for my glaucoma patients.”
