If you have glaucoma, your eye’s natural drainage system works less efficiently over time. Dr. Kalski is now able to treat glaucoma at the same time as your cataract surgery in a completely new and innovative way. The iStent® Trabecular Micro-Bypass is placed into the drainage area of your eye at the time of your cataract surgery, creating a permanent opening that improves the eye’s natural fluid outflow. The iStent® lowers and controls the eye pressure by improving the outflow of fluid in your eye. After iStent® implantation, most patients achieve better eye pressure control with fewer or no medications.
