What Is MIGS?

Recent advancements in glaucoma management technologies have provided patients a number of new methods of controlling this common eye condition. The majority of these procedures fall under the term minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS). At Rothchild Eye Institute, we are excited to offer MIGS and various other laser eye surgeries to glaucoma patients in Delray Beach, FL. MIGS techniques are conducted using microscopic incisions and instruments to reduce internal ocular pressure (IOP) and help minimize further damage to the optic nerve. Offering a safe approach to care, MIGS can be performed to treat the majority of glaucoma stages. Please contact the glaucoma specialists in Delray Beach, FL to plan your MIGS consultation with one of our board-certified ophthalmologists
