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. Contact our Bloomington, IN practice to arrange your MIGS consultation with R. Daniel Grossman, M.D. or a member of our skilled team today.
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.
"My husband had a chalazion removed from his lower eye lid, and we had a great experience! Everyone was so friendly, from the receptionist out front to Dr. Andrew Huck! It was a quick process, and Dr. Huck walked us through each step of the procedure. He made us feel so comfortable and cared for. Thank you for all you guys do!!"- E.W. / Yelp / Oct 06, 2021
"They are very thorough in caring for new patients. They are conscious of covid 19 protocols. The practice has both ophthalmologist as well as optometrists. In case you need eye surgery, the surgery center is on the lower level. As a new patient I appreciate what they have to offer for eye care."- M.H. / Yelp / Mar 25, 2021

"Outstanding surgeon for my lasik! The eye center of southern Indiana is a top notch facility - I chose it over anything in the Indianapolis area because it's the best. "- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jun 02, 2017
"I just had my LASIK eye surgery done with Dr. Mackey at the Eye Center yesterday. I recommend it highly, and wish I had done it sooner. The staff was as sweet as can be, and I felt so comfortable the entire time. I would really like to thank Dr.Mackey, Dr Gray and Melissa for taking such good care of me. There was virtually no wait times which cut down on my nerves substantially. The procedure itself was completely painless and was over before I knew it. I’m super pleased with my experience:)"- C.E. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2015
