Tower Clock Eye Center hosts local optometrists to discuss iStent®

Tower Clock Eye Center’s Dr. Kurt Schwiesow recently hosted several local optometrists to discuss a relatively new technology that helps people facing cataract surgery who also have mild-to-moderate open angle glaucoma. The event was held at Tower Clock Surgery Center and was another continuing education event offered by the clinic.

The technology discussed was iStent, a tiny titanium device that is placed in the eye to help control and maintain proper eye pressure. Dr. Schwiesow spoke for over an hour about how the device works, its effectiveness as well as how it compares to other techniques.

After the lecture portion of the event, all attending optometrists were welcome to try inserting an iStent during a hands on lab. The event was held in conjunction with Glaukos, the company that developed the iStent device.
