What Is MIGS?

Due to advancements in glaucoma management technologies over the last several years, most glaucoma patients have access to many new ways to manage their condition. Many of these methods fit into the minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) category.

At Heart of America Eye Care, we are proud to perform MIGS procedures for our Kansas and Missouri patients. MIGS treatments use minuscule incisions and devices to ease intraocular pressure to avoid or delay further damage to the optical nerve. In addition, MIGS can be performed at nearly all stages of the disease. These procedures typically cause fewer post-procedure complications, and most glaucoma specialists believe they are safer overall than traditional glaucoma surgery. Contact your nearest location in Overland Park or Shawnee Mission, KS, or Belton, MO to plan your MIGS evaluation.

How Is MIGS Performed?

While it may seem like an intimidating procedure, MIGS is often performed in about 15 minutes in an outpatient setting. Our eye surgeons are proud to perform this procedure using state-of-the-art technologies at our Prairie Village, KS surgery center. Comparably, MIGS has a shorter recovery period than other glaucoma treatment options and allows you to return to your everyday activities within about a week. We will schedule a few follow-up appointments to monitor your healing and eye pressure.

Minimally Invasive Treatment Options

Until very recently, patients suffering from aggressive glaucoma only had one solution for treatment. However, MIGS and laser surgeries now enable eye surgeons to provide several kinds of procedures to help patients manage their glaucoma. Heart of America Eye Care is proud to offer this procedure to qualified patients. Contact one of our locations in Belton, MO or Shawnee Mission or Overland Park, KS to schedule a MIGS assessment and see if this minor procedure can help manage your internal eye pressure.
