Integrating iStent inject® into Your Practice
Conventional thinking about glaucoma management has commonly reserved surgery for advanced disease. Today, thanks to the advancement of Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS), that perspective has evolved, and surgery with iStent inject® has become a valuable option for many practices just like yours. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider offering the benefits of iStent inject® to your patients.
Easy Adoption into Your Practice
A simple iStent inject® implantation can significantly reduce a patient’s intraocular pressure (IOP). Clinical studies show that iStent inject® is effective when implanted alone or in conjunction with cataract surgery in those subjects who require intraocular pressure reduction.1,2

Glaucoma Prevalence in Your Patient Population
Ideal iStent inject® patients are already in your practice! Glaukos can provide educational materials to you, your staff and your patients to help you offer this opportunity to all of your glaucoma candidates with open-angle glaucoma, either at the time of cataract surgery or as a stand-alone procedure.
Offer Complete Treatment Options
With the rapid introduction of advanced technologies and techniques, the role of the surgeon continues to expand. Furthermore, ophthalmologists are looking for a safe and minimally invasive surgical alternative that can provide earlier intervention for open-angle glaucoma. iStent inject® provides both, enabling you to present your patients with open-angle glaucoma an innovative treatment offering.
