Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery

Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery is just as it sounds; a treatment used to prevent or reduce damage to the optic nerve without as many complications and achieved through a more confined procedure. Such procedures are done with lasers or by making microscopic-sized incisions and using tiny instruments. Minimally invasive glaucoma surgeries are considered extremely safe, and can be broken down into the following methods:

  • Redirecting excess fluid to lower pressure
  • Improving the eye’s drainage system to lower pressure
  • Decreasing the production of ocular fluid to lower pressure

Southwest Eyecare is proud to offer various options for each of these methods, and invites you to schedule an exam today to see which is right for you!
