Integrating iStent® 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® 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® to your patients.
Easy Adoption into Your Practice
A single iStent® implantation in conjunction with cataract surgery can significantly reduce a patient’s intraocular pressure (IOP). Its overall safety profile is similar to that of cataract surgery alone, and implantation is done through an ab interno procedure. iStent® is also covered by all Medicare plans and most insurance plans, making payment options easy for your patients and office staff.
Glaucoma Prevalence in the Cataract Population
Ideal iStent® patients are already in your practice! Glaukos can provide educational materials to you, your staff and your patients to help you offer this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to all of your cataract candidates with mild-to-moderate open-angle glaucoma currently using one of more hypotensive medication.
Offer Complete Treatment Options
With the rapid introduction of advanced technologies and techniques, the role of the comprehensive cataract surgeon continues to expand. Furthermore, ophthalmologists are looking for a safe and minimally invasive surgical alternative that can provide earlier intervention for mild-to-moderate open-angle glaucoma. iStent® provides both, enabling you to present your cataract patients with mild-to-moderate open-angle glaucoma with a complete treatment offering.
