A Huge Impact
iStent inject is the smallest medical implant known to be implanted in the human body and it can have remarkable benefits for cataract patients with glaucoma.
FDA approved, iStent inject has been implanted in the eyes of patients in the US and around the world, with more patients benefiting from the iStent inject procedure every day.
How iStent inject Works
To help control the increased pressure in your eye associated with glaucoma, iStent inject creates two bypasses, or openings, between the front part of your eye and its natural drainage pathway to increase the flow of fluid. By creating the permanent bypasses through the primary blockage site (trabecular meshwork), iStent inject is designed to:
- Improve your eye’s natural outflow to safely lower intraocular pressure
- Work continuously to improve the natural flow of fluid in your eyes
