Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS): I-stent

Dr. Kim is performing the latest techniques in minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) with the I-stent. The I-stent is the world’s smallest implantable medical device (1mm in length) and is FDA approved for the treatment of mild to moderate glaucoma at the time of cataract surgery.

The I-stent helps to reduce intraocular (eye) pressure by improving the outflow of the internal fluid in the eye through a natural, physiologic pathway.

The I-stent is:

  • Proven safe and effective
  • So small that it cannot be felt or seen
  • Works continuously to lower intraocular (eye) pressure
  • Creates a permanent opening for sustained pressure reduction
  • Spares important eye tissues that are often damaged with traditional glaucoma surgery
  • Does not limit future treatment options
