We are proud to offer the newest technology for glaucoma treatment. As a glaucoma specialist, Dr. Brubaker and Dr. Xiongfei Liu are dedicated to finding new ways to help their patients who suffer from glaucoma. A major challenge of fighting the disease is understanding that glaucoma isn’t just one disease but a group of conditions that cause the eye to lose sight. Defining what condition each patient has and the best way to treat that specific condition is what makes treating the disease so complicated. Sacramento Eye Consultants was the first U.S. investigator to study the iStent in 2002, the newest FDA approved surgical device developed from a company, Glaukos. This device was designed to improve the eye’s natural fluid outflow to safely lower eye pressure by creating a permanent opening in the trabecular meshwork.
