what is minimally invasive glaucoma surgery?
As a result of the advancements in glaucoma treatment over the past few years, most patients diagnosed with glaucoma have a large selection of new methods to help manage their disease. This often includes minimally invasive glaucoma surgery or MIGS, which is actually a collection of procedures that utilize innovative techniques and technologies to alleviate abnormal eye pressure. This process helps to slow down the progression of glaucoma and further damage to the optical nerve. Since MIGS procedures are minimally invasive, this means fewer complications and faster recovery times compared to traditional glaucoma surgery. Contact Baton Rouge Eye Physicians in Baton Rouge, LA to schedule your MIGS consultation with our team today.
