Management of Glaucoma at the time of Cataract Surgery: With the advancement of technology, microinvasive techniques can be used to lower intraocular pressure (IOP) with patients who have mild to moderate glaucoma. The iStent Trabecular Micro-bypass Stent improves the eye's natural fluid outflow and controls the pressure within. It can be implanted into the eye's drain system at the end of a cataract surgical procedure. Results indicate most patients need less drop medications afterwards. For more advanced cases of Glaucoma a variety of other drainage devices and techniques exist. Since each patient is different, we recommend a comprehensive discussion about the options and expected outcomes with your surgeon.
