A Tiny Implant; A Huge Impact
iStent inject® is one of the smallest medical implants known to be implanted in the human body and can effectively lower IOP, one of the most important risk factors for glaucoma.
Glaukos started a revolution in glaucoma surgery and treatment with the development of the first Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery device. To date trabecular micro-bypass technologies developed by Glaukos, such as iStent® and iStent inject®, have been implanted in over 300,000 eyes around the world with more patients benefitting from these procedures every day.
Once implanted in the eye, iStent inject® can help restore normal pressure in the eye. iStent inject® 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
• May allow your doctor to reduce or eliminate your need for glaucoma medication
The iStent inject® Implant
With iStent inject® two tiny stents are carefully implanted in your eye. Each tiny iStent inject® 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 manoeuvre the implant for accurate, micro-targeted placement.
