Reviews

Great way to do a combined cataract and glaucoma surgery! You can easily lower your patient's IOP without the trauma associated with traditional filtering procedures.

Joshua F., Ophthalmologist (MD), United States

Very atraumatic insertion after the initial learning curve. Excellent safety profile. My patients have averaged 1.5 medication decrease concurrent with cataract surgery.

Peter C., Ophthalmologist (MD), United States

The iStent has an excellent safety profile. Even for novice surgeons, it requires very little additional time added to traditional cataract surgery. Patients who are taking only 1 glaucoma medication, in my opinion, benefit most since they have the added convenience of not having to do medications daily.
