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 meshwork.

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.

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

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.

Like the idea and the engineering. Still in the learning curve.
