Treat Glaucoma During Cataract Surgery
Are you a Glaucoma patient preparing for Cataract Surgery?
We are excited to announce a brand new technology we offer here at the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center, that will make managing your Glaucoma far easier.
The iStent Trabecular Micro-Bypass Stent can help treat glaucoma as yet another way you can customize your cataract surgery. The stent is a new technology that will make managing glaucoma far easier by reducing your intraocular pressure.
As tiny as a grain of rice, the stent is placed at the base of your iris during your cataract surgery, and helps to relieve eye pressure by draining excess fluids.
The iStent is the smallest medical device to ever be approved by the Federal Drug Administration, and while you will notice an improvement in your eye pressure, you will not feel or see the stent.
Ask us today if you are a candidate for the iStent as you undergo cataract surgery.
