A Tiny Implant; A Huge Impact
iStent inject® W 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®, iStent inject®, and iStent inject® W – have been implanted in over 600,000 eyes around the world, with more patients benefitting from these procedures every day.
Once implanted in the eye, iStent inject® W can help restore normal pressure in the eye. It’s designed to restore your eye’s natural ability to drain the fluid that causes the increased pressure inside your eye. This may allow your doctor to reduce or eliminate your glaucoma medications.
The iStent inject® W Implant
With iStent inject® W, two tiny stents are carefully implanted in your eye. Each tiny iStent inject® W implant is comprised of a surgical titanium micro-bypass stent that’s preloaded in a single use sterile injector. The specially designed injector helps your eye surgeon maneuver the implant for accurate, micro-targeted placement.
