Glaucoma is a progressive eye condition characterized by damage to the optic nerve, often resulting from elevated intraocular pressure (IOP). Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) offers a less invasive alternative to traditional glaucoma surgeries, with the goal of reducing IOP and slowing disease progression.


Glaucoma is often referred to as the “silent thief of sight” because it typically develops without noticeable symptoms until significant vision loss occurs. However, individuals with glaucoma may experience peripheral vision loss, blurred vision, halos around lights, and eye pain or redness in advanced stages.

Common Treatments

MIGS procedures aim to enhance the natural drainage pathways within the eye to reduce IOP and control glaucoma progression. Common MIGS procedures include trabecular micro-bypass stents, suprachoroidal shunts, and endocyclophotocoagulation (ECP).


MIGS procedures are designed to be less invasive and have a quicker recovery time compared to traditional glaucoma surgeries such as trabeculectomy or tube shunt implantation. MIGS is typically performed in conjunction with cataract surgery or as a standalone procedure.

Candidates for MIGS include individuals with mild to moderate glaucoma who have not responded adequately to medications or laser therapy. Your ophthalmologist will assess your specific condition and determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you.

MIGS procedures are typically performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Recovery time is generally faster compared to traditional surgeries, with minimal discomfort and a low risk of complications. Your ophthalmologist will provide detailed instructions for post-operative care.

While MIGS can help reduce the need for glaucoma medications in some cases, it may not eliminate the need entirely. Your ophthalmologist will work with you to optimize your treatment plan and medication regimen for optimal glaucoma management.
