About MIGS

Thanks to the amazing innovations in glaucoma treatment techniques in recent years, millions of people with glaucoma now have a wide variety of options to improve their eye health. The majority of these new techniques fit into the category of minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS). At The Eye Center of Southern Indiana, we are so happy to offer MIGS treatments and various other new laser procedures for our Bloomington, IN patients. MIGS techniques are done using microscopic surgical incisions and equipment to reduce internal eye pressure, delaying any damage to the optic nerve. Fortunately, MIGS can be effective for people suffering from nearly any stage of glaucoma.

What Are The Benefits Of MIGS?

A personalized MIGS treatment for glaucoma can significantly reduce IOP (intraocular pressure) and help preserve eye health with benefits including:

  • Improved patient safety
  • Can decrease the need for more invasive procedures
  • Can be effective when other treatments have failed
  • Reduces risks of double vision
  • Lessens risk of infection
  • Lowers risk of corneal swelling
  • Can achieve a more stable IOP

am i a candidate for migs?

Only an experienced ophthalmologist can determine whether or not a patient is an ideal candidate for MIGS or laser therapy. Glaucoma can range vastly in severity so each patient should receive a personalized treatment plan to manage their symptoms. The most ideal candidates for MIGS:

  • Haven't been able to control their internal eye pressure with prescription eye drops
  • Don't have a high risk of severe progression
  • Are diagnosed with both glaucoma and cataracts
  • Are over 18 years of age
  • Are experiencing mild to moderate glaucoma

Once we have determined that someone is eligible for MIGS, we will go over each of his or her available options. We specialize in multiple MIGS procedures, and all of them are performed using the most cutting-edge technologies and tools.


As recently as ten years ago, patients suffering from aggressive glaucoma only had one solution for treatment. Thankfully, MIGS and laser surgeries now allow us to perform several types of treatments to help patients manage their glaucoma. Get in touch with our team at The Eye Center of Southern Indiana to arrange a MIGS evaluation, and take control of your eye health.
