iStent Surgical Procedure
Dr. Pathak is certified and trained in performing an exciting new surgical procedure called the iStent in patients who have both cataracts and glaucoma. During this procedure, not only is a cataract removed, but also a microscopic stent is placed into the drainage system of the eye. This stent serves to lower the pressure inside of the eye. Patients who undergo this procedure have improved vision and a reduced dependence on medicated eye drops.
