MIGS stands for minimally invasive glaucoma surgery. These are relatively new procedures that use tiny incisions and microscopic equipment to lower eye pressure.
Traditional operations, while effective at lowering eye pressure, have a long list of potential complications. MIGS procedures have been designed to provide a greater degree of safety, enabling them to be used earlier in glaucoma. These procedures may be combined with cataract surgery to reduce or eliminate the need for glaucoma eye drops.
