Posted by: Arbor Centers for Eye Care in Glaucoma
A team of Arbor doctors is one of the first in Chicago and Illinois to offer a unique surgery to our patients for the treatment of glaucoma in combination with cataract surgery. The iStent® (http://www.glaukos.com/istent) is a micro-implant, placed in the eye during cataract surgery to increase and improve fluid outflow and decrease eye pressure. For many patients, fewer or no glaucoma drops will be needed following iStent® insertion. If you have glaucoma and cataracts, please contact the office to schedule an appointment with one of our surgeons (Dr. Chris Albanis, Dr. Surendar Dwarakanathan, Dr. David Lubeck, Dr. Richard Quinones, or Dr. Leo Wang) to determine if iStent® is right for you.
