Abstract:

Purpose: To elucidate the many ways surgeons are combining minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) procedures.
Methods: The data and current experience were researched and analyzed.
Results: Surgeons have been individualizing the surgical care of glaucoma patients using the canal, supraciliary space, subconjunctival space, and ciliary ablation techniques in combination to lower intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with glaucoma.
Conclusion: There are a variety of modalities currently used to mix and combine MIGS to treat each patient based on severity of glaucoma, number of preoperative medications, level of IOP, and individual patient needs and demands.
