iStent® Trabecular Micro-Bypass Stent

If you need cataract surgery and you have glaucoma, don’t worry. Frantz EyeCare is proud to introduce the latest advancement in glaucoma patient care, The iStent® Trabecular Micro-Bypass tentThe iStent® trabecular micro-bypass stent is a surgical therapy for patients who have mild to moderate open-angle glaucoma and have been tried possibly on topical medications or laser therapy.  It is designed to improve the aqueous outflow to better lower the intraocular pressure and reduce the need for medications.  The iStent® is the smallest medical device approved by the FDA to date.

The iStent® is a tiny tube that is implanted into the eye of a patient with glaucoma during cataract surgery.

It is precisely placed just below the surface of the eye to create a new pathway for the outflow of fluid helping reduce the IOP.

If glaucoma is left untreated and the IOP builds up, it can eventually lead to optic nerve damage and even blindness.

The doctors at Frantz EyeCare are world-class leaders in glaucoma diagnosis, treatment, and management. To schedule an evaluation today, call (239) 418-0999 or click here.
