MIGS

What is MIGS?

MIGS has become a commonly used abbreviation in the glaucoma world. It stands for Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery. The goal of all glaucoma surgery is to lower eye pressure to prevent or reduce damage to the optic nerve.

Why MIGS?

Standard glaucoma surgeries are major, invasive surgeries. While they are very often effective at lowering eye pressure and preventing progression of glaucoma, they have a long list of potential complications.  The MIGS group of operations have been developed in recent years to reduce some of the complications of most standard glaucoma surgeries.

MIGS procedures work by using microscopic-sized equipment and tiny incisions. While they reduce the incidence of complications, some degree of effectiveness is also traded for the increased safety.  Drs. Barber and Sluch have extensive experience in performing a full range of MIGS procedures and participate in a clinical research trial on new and emerging MIGS medical devices.
