Two iStent procedure may be more cost-efficient than other IOP-lowering treatments

May 23, 2017

In treating elevated IOP in open-angle glaucoma patients, two iStent trabecular micro-bypass stents had a lower projected cumulative cost after 5 years compared with selective laser trabeculoplasty or topical glaucoma medication only, a study sponsored by Glaukos found.

While the two iStent procedure had the highest initial cost, the average projected cost of the procedure was $4,420 after 5 years, whereas SLT was $4,730 and topical medication was $6,217, according to a Glaukos press release.
