Thomas Samuelson, MD, and David Goldman, MD, discuss the iStent Trabecular Micro-Bypass Stent (Glaukos). Dr. Samuelson says this device is one of the most exciting surgical developments he has seen in his 25-year glaucoma career and adds that he now has a surgical option for patients with mild to moderate disease. Dr. Goldman explains why this implant is a natural extension of a premium cataract practice where optimized outcomes are paramount. The two surgeons provide surgical pearls for adding microinvasive glaucoma surgery to a practice and incorporating the iStent with efficiency.
