Dr. Okeke, First In Hampton Roads to Provide Both Trabectome and Istent Procedures for Treating Glaucoma
Virginia Eye Consultant's Dr. Okeke is the first in the Hampton Roads area to provide both Trabectome and iStent procedures to patients for the treatment of glaucoma.
Hampton (I-Newswire) September 26, 2013 - Virginia Eye Consultant's Dr. Okeke is the first in the Hampton Roads area to provide both Trabectome and iStent procedures to patients for the treatment of glaucoma.
Glaukos iStent is a minimally invasive surgery, known as MIGS (Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery). In fact, the iStent is the smallest medical device ever approved by the FDA and is truly a revolution in glaucoma treatment. It is so small, patients aren't able to see or feel it after surgery, although it is continuously working to help reduce eye pressure.
The iStent is the first FDA-approved trabecular micro-bypass technology that improves the eye's natural fluid outflow to safely lower eye pressure by creating a permanent opening in the trabecular meshwork. After implantation of iStent, many patient's eye pressure is controlled.
If a person has both glaucoma and cataract, then they should consult their eye doctor to see if they are a candidate for iStent.
