Dr. Katz' approach to Glaucoma

Dr. Katz is a comprehensive ophthalmologist with extensive expertise in medical and laser treatment of glaucoma.  With the advances in pharmaceutical development in recent past, most patients with glaucoma are managed well with topical application of drops.  In some cases, laser procedures, such as SLT (selective laser trabeculoplasty) is advised.  Dr. Katz has performed thousands of glaucoma laser procedures.  These are relatively minimally invasive procedures that are done in the office with essentially no discomfort to the patient and no downtime.  

 

Dr. Katz is now also offering the iStent procedure to patients with mild to moderate glaucoma who are undergoing cataract surgery.  The device is a tiny implant that is placed into the drainage canal of the eye at the time of cataract surgery.  It has been shown to reduce intraocular pressure and can frequently help limit and/or eliminate glaucoma medications after cataract removal.
