iStent procedure to treat open angle glaucoma 
The iStent is the smallest medical device to be implanted in the human eye. It is a tiny one-millimetre-long titanium tube and it is used to help treat patient with a condition called ‘open angle glaucoma’. Implantation of an iStent takes only 5-10 minutes. It is often performed at the end of cataract surgery, but can also be done alone. Most people have the operation performed under a local anaesthetic. Immediately after your operation your glaucoma eye drops to your operated eye only will be stopped. You will be given a course of anti-inflammatory and antibiotic eye drops to use after your operation to prevent inflammation and infection.

Will the Istent cure my glaucoma?
The Istent will not cure your glaucoma, neither will it reverse any damage already caused by glaucoma or bring back any lost vision. However, it might prevent your glaucoma from getting worse by lowering your eye pressure.

Is the iStent suitable for everyone?
The iStent is not suitable for all patients and is not suitable for all types of glaucoma. It is suitable for use in those patients who have a type of glaucoma called open angle glaucoma. Your doctor will discuss and explain the suitability of the iStent fully with you.
