"It feels so good," Lind Sabatini told Ivanhoe.
In fact, 68 percent of glaucoma patients who received the iStent remained medication free at 12 months.
Doctors implanted a tiny titanium device in Linda left eye. It called iStent. It creates a channel for excess fluid to drain and lower the eye pressure.
"It is minimally invasive. It has little risk compared to other major glaucoma surgeries, and can effectively reduce the pressure in many patients," Dr. Lubeck said.
What are the risks and complications of the eye stent?
Congenital glaucoma: seen in babies and present at birth due to abnormal eye development. The iStent is the smallest device ever approved by the FDA, and is designed to be inserted into the eye during normal cataract surgery. The device creates a permanent opening to release eye pressure, easing some of the symptoms of glaucoma. Although it can bring back sight, the iStent can get patients Adidas Tracksuit Red And White off daily glaucoma medications. In a trial, 68 percent of patients who had the iStent were medication free 12 months after the surgery. David Lubeck, Ophthalmologist, Arbor Centers for EyeCare, Chicago, IL, talks about a new treatment for glaucoma.

slowly losing her vision from cataracts and glaucoma. Glaucoma is a disease where fluid pressure builds up inside the eye.
Can you explain what this new surgery is?
Angle closure (acute) glaucoma: occurs when the exit of the aqueous humor fluid is suddenly blocked. This causes a quick, severe, and painful rise in the pressure in the eye. This is an emergency, and if you have had acute glaucoma in one eye, you are at risk for an attack in the second eye.
What were the risks of the prior surgeries?
How is this treatment different than ones in the past?

and improve the treatment of glaucoma.
Dr. Lubeck: Most glaucoma surgeries require disrupting or cutting through many layers of the eye, they can take a long time to heal, they can become ineffective over time if they scar or fibrose, and often they make the eye more prone to further complications or other problems thereafter.
Dr. Lubeck: There have been three levels of treatment with glaucoma up until now. There have been drops, there been laser treatments, and then there been surgical treatments, most of which were fairly invasive and had high potential complication rates. The eye stent is a micro trabecular bypass device; so it minimally invasive. It has little risk compared to other major glaucoma surgeries and can effectively reduce the pressure in many patients.

The iStent surgery is performed during normal cataract surgery, using the same incisions. The new procedure can reduce or eliminate the need for open angle glaucoma patients to use up to three types of glaucoma medications daily.
"A sustained elevated pressure then causes damage to the optic nerve, the nerve in the back of the eye," David M. Lubeck, MD, Ophthalmologist, Arbor Centers for EyeCare, told Ivanhoe.

"I can see so clearly," Linda said.
Dr. Lubeck: Well the eye stent, because it being placed as part of cataract surgery, carries essentially the risks of cataract surgery alone which are usually quite small. The eye stent itself does not add significantly to the risks of cataract surgery itself.
Even with the iStent surgery, glaucoma is not curable, and vision lost cannot be regained. However, with medication and/or surgery, it is possible to halt further loss of vision.

CHICAGO (Ivanhoe Newswire) More than two million Americans have glaucoma, but only half know it. Untreated, it can cause blindness. In the past glaucoma sufferers either had to undergo risky surgery or use daily eye drops to help manage this incurable disease. Now, a new implant is helping to eliminate the need for either.
loss. It is the second most common cause of blindness in the United States. Everyone is at risk for glaucoma, there may be no symptoms to warn you, and there is no cure for the disease. It is estimated that over 2.2 million Americans have glaucoma but only half of those know they have it. The pressure pushes on the optic nerve. Unknown cause, tends to run in families
