MIGS is a newer development in recent years to reduce complications in standard glaucoma surgeries.
Two recognized MIGS benefits are that it reduces discomfort and promotes quicker recovery. MIGS is also a widely accepted approach for treating mild-to-moderate glaucoma.
Overall, MIGS procedures are believed to be safer than traditional trabeculectomy or tube shunt surgeries.
According to recent medical studies, MIGS is an effective treatment to lower eye pressure without patients having to take medication. In some cases, MIGS can reduce the amount of medications a patient requires without subjecting them to the risks of traditional glaucoma surgery.
The MIGS group of operations are divided into several categories:
- Miniaturized versions of trabeculectomy
- Trabecular bypass operations
- Totally internal or suprachoroidal shunts
- Milder, gentler versions of laser photocoagulation
"This place is filled with staff who values everyone who walks into their office. They take their time to show every patient the same level of excellence care and service. As response to the negative comments, I for one don't want anyone rushing to get me out the door, without full proper correction of what ever brought me in to their office. The office management, Janice and Paula have always been friendly and make sure that they have had great staff to provide only the best."

"I’ve purchased two pairs of prescription Oakleys from the optical shop here, one sunglasses and the other progressives. They had an excellent selection of both high-end and budget frames and Gary and Jenny were very helpful in choosing and fitting the frames. Both sets of glasses turned out great—amazingly clear and comfortable! Highly recommended!"

"I could not be more pleased by the treatment I received from Dr. Rutar and her staff. She performed two cataract surgeries for me and each time she carefully explained all the options and risks along with the likely outcomes. I was completely confident in her approach, as well as in her staff, who are very pleasant and professional."
