Eye Health Care

iStent - Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery

The Eye Surgeons at Garden Route Eye Clinic use various options for Micro (Minimally) Invasive Glaucoma Surgery, including iStent Implantations.

iStent is the first MIGS device that improves your eye’s natural fluid outflow to safely lower eye pressure by creating a permanent opening in the trabecular istent - graph 1meshwork.

For patients with combined cataract and open-angle glaucoma, iStent reduces introcular pressure (IOP) by improving aqueous humor outflow. Inserted through a 1.5-mm corneal incision, iStent is the only FDA-approved device for the treatment of mild to moderate open-angle glaucoma.

iStent is the smallest medical device ever approved by the FDA. It is placed in your eye during cataract surgery and is so small that you won’t be able to see or feel it after the procedure is over. iStent is designed to create a permanent opening in your trabecular meshwork, and works continuously to improve the outflow of fluid from your eyes to help control eye pressure.

Our eye surgeons consult in George, Knysna, Oudtshoorn.

 

 istent-size-comparison-450INDICATION FOR USE

The iStent Trabecular Micro-Bypass Stent (Models GTS100R and GTS100L) is indicated for use in conjunction with cataract surgery for the reduction of intraocular pressure (IOP) in adult patients with mild to moderate open-angle glaucoma currently treated with ocular hypotensive medication.
