Stanford ophthalmologists are working to bring better eye care to every patient, no matter how serious the condition. From microscopic procedures for treating glaucoma, to correcting astigmatism after cataract surgery, we’re dedicated to preserving every patient’s vision.
From advanced micro-pulse lasers to gold-standard filtering procedures, Stanford eye surgeons have access to the most advanced surgical tools necessary to perform pressure-lowering surgery for every glaucoma patient.
Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) is performed using microscopic equipment with tiny incisions to minimize trauma and allow for rapid recovery. For certain types of glaucoma, this approach safely decreases eye pressure to prevent or slow disease progression, without many of the risks that are associated with more invasive standard surgery.
