iStent new treatment for glaucoma

The iStent device has been FDA approved.


This will add to the growing number of aqueous bypass devices available to ophthalmic surgeons.  This device is unique in that it can be inserted though the same incision used during cataract surgery with no additional external surgery like the other devices. Because it is a stent it has less likelihood of dysfunction by scarring that is seen in incisional angle surgery.
