A Tiny Implant, A Huge Impact
iStent® is not only the world’s smallest medical implant known to be implanted in the human body — it also started a revolution in glaucoma treatment as the first Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) device. The first MIGS device approved by the FDA, today iStent® has been implanted in over 300,000 eyes around the world, with more and more patients benefiting from the iStent® procedure every day.
This tiny implant can also make a huge impact for patients who receive it. Once implanted in the eye, the device can help restore normal pressure in the eye. The iStent® is designed to:
• Restore your eye’s natural ability to drain the fluid that causes the increased pressure inside your eye
• Keep eye pressure at a normal level
• This may allow your doctor to reduce or eliminate your need for glaucoma medication
The iStent® Implant
Each tiny iStent® implant is comprised of a surgical titanium micro-bypass stent that’s preloaded in a single use sterile inserter. The specially designed inserter helps your eye surgeon maneuver the implant for accurate, micro-targeted placement.
