In brief: Yes

The latest surgical treatment approved for open angle glaucoma and cataract is called istent.
In this procedure, the surgeon inserts a tiny stent inside the eye to bypass a portion of the eye's natural drainage system. New drugs for glaucoma are close to approval, but not available yet.
