The iStent is a procedure to help safely and effectively manage your eye pressure. The iStent is used in conjunction with cataract surgery to help reduce the intraocular pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma. The iStent creates a permanent opening in the eye’s natural drainage system to improve the eye’s natural fluid outflow. By improving the fluid outflow, the intraocular pressure lowers. You may be able to experience a reduction in your glaucoma medications after having the iStent procedure.
