Glaucoma Care at Newsom Eye

Our Newsom Eye glaucoma specialists in Tampa and Sebring offer a variety of advanced treatment options including MIGS (minimally invasive glaucoma surgery) which includes the iStent Trabecular Micro-Bypass. This procedure is designed to help cataract surgery patients who are also affected by mild to moderate open-angle glaucoma. After an intraocular lens (IOL) has been implanted during cataract surgery, the surgeon can then insert the iStent to help reduce pressure and slow the progression of glaucoma to allow better drainage of excess liquid from the eye.


Unlocking Clear Vision: iStent for Glaucoma Treatment

At Newsom Eye, we understand the challenges of managing glaucoma alongside other eye conditions. That’s why our team of glaucoma specialists in Tampa and Sebring is dedicated to offering cutting-edge treatment options, including the innovative iStent Trabecular Micro-Bypass. This groundbreaking procedure represents a significant advancement in the management of mild to moderate open-angle glaucoma, particularly in patients undergoing cataract surgery.

What is iStent?

The iStent implant is a miniature device designed to address glaucoma by improving the eye’s natural drainage system. This tiny device is inserted into the eye during cataract surgery, following the implantation of an intraocular lens (IOL). The iStent works by creating a permanent opening in the trabecular meshwork, a drainage structure within the eye, to facilitate the outflow of fluid and reduce intraocular pressure (IOP).

Benefits of iStent

One of the key advantages of the iStent implant is its ability to manage glaucoma effectively while minimizing the risk of complications. Unlike traditional glaucoma surgeries, which can be invasive and carry a higher risk of side effects, the iStent procedure is minimally invasive and typically well-tolerated by patients. By improving fluid outflow, the iStent helps to regulate intraocular pressure and slow the progression of glaucoma, thereby preserving vision and enhancing overall eye health.

Studies have shown that patients who undergo iStent surgery experience a significant reduction in intraocular pressure, leading to better management of glaucoma symptoms and a decreased reliance on costly glaucoma medications. Additionally, the iStent procedure can be performed in conjunction with cataract surgery, streamlining the treatment process and improving patient outcomes.
