Micro Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS)

 Micro Invasive Glaucoma Surgery, or MIGS, is an important new option in glaucoma management.  These types of procedures, allow improvement in drainage of aqueous fluid in the eye with improved side effect profiles compared to more traditional glaucoma surgeries.

 Dr. San Filippo is now performing a type of MIGS procedure, the iStent® Trabecular Micro-Bypass in combination with cataract surgery. The iStent®  is the first device of it's kind, allowing improvent in the natural outflow of aqueous which lowers eye pressure.  The device is the smallest device ever approved by the FDA and it cannot be seen or felt after surgery.

 If you have both cataracts and glaucoma and want to know more about iStent®, request an appointment with Dr. San Filippo here
