      If the patient’s disease process progresses despite adequate medical treatment, or if there are problems with tolerability or adherence, surgical treatment may be a viable alternative .1-3

      What is minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS)?

      MIGS is a collective name for minimally invasive surgical procedures with improved safety compared with conventional surgery.1–6 MIGS facilitates aqueous outflow through minimal impact on the structures of the eye, while also reducing both surgical and healing times.1 When drops are no longer sufficient to help your patients, minimally invasive glaucoma surgery may be an option.1–3

      Earlier referral increases treatment benefit

      Although modern, minimally invasive methods are now available, late referrals are still common. It takes an average of 8.5 years (interval 14 days to 40 years) from the time of diagnosis until patient referral for surgery. This is too late for 2/3 of patients; by the time they are referred, IOP has become too high in 22% of patients, while 44.4% have developed advanced functional and structural eye defects.8 If referrals are made earlier, more surgical options are available and patients will experience greater treatment benefit.9–12
