When ambition meets ambition

Glaucoma is the second leading cause of adult blindness globally affecting more than 92 million people worldwide and driven by an increase in intraocular pressure. Micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) is the most promising and fastest-growing therapeutic option in the treatment of glaucoma. iSTAR Medical is setting new frontiers in MIGS treatment of glaucoma. The positive results achieved at the first-in-human trial validates the potential of MINIject in the supraciliary space as the next therapeutic option for glaucoma patients.

Together, we build a leading company

We are looking forward to help build iSTAR Medical to become the leading player in the MIGS field. The financing, support and expertise of a solid, specialized Life Science syndicate aims to empower the developments towards commercialization of MINIject.
