Dr. Raviv comments on Anthem Insurance’s recent policy change in California calling for elimination of anesthesia payment from cataract surgery.

The iStent is a minimally invasive treatment for glaucoma. Used at the time of cataract surgery, Dr. Raviv is able to treat concurrent glaucoma which occurs in 1 in 6 cataract surgical patients. So with one laser cataract surgery procedure, Dr. Raviv is able to decrease patients’ dependence on glasses as well as their glaucoma drops.

Dr. Raviv was interviewed by EyeWorld Magazine on his  presentation on the new thinking in astigmatism treatment during the annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology in New Orleans November 2017
