Glaucoma is a chronic, progressive, degenerative disorder of the optic nerve that produces visual field damage. It is estimated that over 100 million people have glaucoma worldwide.
Here at iSTAR Medical we refer to glaucoma as the silent thief. This is because, in its early stages, glaucoma is asymptomatic and approximately 50% of individuals with glaucoma are unaware that they have the disease. Catch the disease early and you have a great chance of preserving your vision for the years to come.
Our MIGS device, MINIject, has demonstrated efficacy in reducing eye pressure, the only modifiable risk factor for the progression of glaucoma.
World Glaucoma Week is dedicated to creating awareness about this silent disease.
