Glaucoma Service

Glaucoma surgery is changing seemingly monthly.  It’s an exciting time.

Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve that requires lowering of eye pressure for its treatment.  This lowering is done in many ways:  eye drops, lasers, and surgery.

The changes of late have involvement the laser and surgical types of interventions.  OPHTHALMIC ASSOCIATES continues to bring the latest technology to our patients with the use of MIGS (minimally invasive glaucoma surgery) techniques.

MIGS occurs mostly during your cataract surgery and is much simpler and safer than previous kinds of glaucoma surgery.

Additionally, we now offer the IRIDEX MP3 OR BASED LASER for our patients.  Again, talk to your doctor about theses procedures for more information.
