Glaucoma Surgery & Treatments

Glaucoma is a disease that damages your eye’s optic nerve. It usually happens when fluid builds up in the front part of your eye. That extra fluid increases the pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve

Glaucoma Diagnosis

The only sure way to diagnose glaucoma is with a complete eye exam. A glaucoma screening that only checks eye pressure is not enough to find glaucoma.

During a glaucoma exam, your ophthalmologist will:

  • Measure your eye pressure
  • Inspect your eye’s drainage angle
  • Examine your optic nerve for damage
  • Test your peripheral (side) vision
  • Take a picture or computer measurement of your optic nerve
  • Measure the thickness of your cornea

Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS)

Puerto Vallarta, Jal. México

Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS)

The treatment for glaucoma has come a long way. Today’s advanced technologies and procedures make it possible to diagnose and successfully manage this progressive disease.

And while the overall goal of treatment has always remained the same — reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) and glaucomatous progression — Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) is quickly becoming a widely accepted approach for treating mild-to-moderate glaucoma.

Glaucoma Therapy Advances

Glaucoma is primarily managed with prescription eye drops. If a patient’s glaucoma progresses or the patient stops responding to the eye drops, a surgical solution is offered.

These surgical solutions are often highly invasive, require long recovery times, and could result in long-term complications.

As technology has progressed, less invasive techniques have emerged that have improved the safety profile for glaucoma surgery. This opened more surgical options for patients interested in effective glaucoma management which does not rely solely on the continuous use of prescription medication.

A Revolution in Glaucoma Therapy

With the FDA approval of the iStent®, Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) became a preferred approach to glaucoma management for many eye care professionals and their patients with mild-to-moderate glaucoma. 1

Now, with the FDA approval of iStent inject® – the next-generation Glaukos trabecular micro-bypass technology – Glaukos is advancing the standard of care for glaucoma patients.

Performed at the time of cataract surgery, iStent inject® has proven to be effective in decreasing IOP, with an excellent safety profile, few complications, and fast recovery time.2, 3

iStent inject® may also reduce patients’ need for medications as determined by an eye care professional. The majority of patients who received iStent inject® in the U.S. pivotal trial were medication-free at 23 months. 2 Other benefits associated with this innovative treatment include:

• Minimally traumatic to delicate eye tissue
• Effectively lowers IOP
• Excellent safety profile
• Rapid recovery
