iStent®: A WELCOME Alternative to Glaucoma Treatment
Glaucoma is a serious disease that could lead to blindness. Fortunately with current treatments, glaucoma is relatively easy to control.
But the story doesn't end there. People with glaucoma typically have to apply drops to their eyes one to three times a day—an expensive and inconvenient proposition. The problem: May people let this conflict keep them from the desired happy ending.
We are making it so much easier for you to get to a satisfying resolution here at EOSC.
EOSC is one of the first healthcare facilities in Illinois to offer a new treatment option that reduces eye pressure for patients with both cataracts and glaucoma. Many of our surgeons are now implanting the iStent during cataract surgery—making it possible to reduce eye pressure for adult patients with mild-to-moderate open-angle glaucoma and significantly reducing or completely eliminating the need for prescription eye drops.
The smallest medical device ever approved by the FDA, the iStent® Trabecular Micro-Bypass Stent, produced by Glaukos Corp., Laguna Hills, CA does not significantly extend the length of time you spend in surgery and has a similiar safety profile to cataract surgery alone.
