Today, there are many different surgical options available to help prevent vision loss caused by high eye pressure and glaucoma. The type of surgery recommended will depend on the stage of glaucoma and any other concomitant eye disease.
Micro invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) procedures are a new category of glaucoma surgery for patients with mild to moderate glaucoma. These procedures have a higher safety profile with fewer complications and a more rapid recovery time than other more invasive techniques.
MIGS procedures include: iStent, Hydrus, Xen, Trabectome and ab interno canaloplasty.
