Glaucoma is one of the most common reasons for irreversible vision loss for patients in Cumberland County New Jersey. It is also not unusual for patients with glaucoma to also suffer from cataracts. Up until now, the options to treat patients with glaucoma and cataracts have been limited.
Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) is now available to the patients of Cumberland County NJ at the Eye Surgical Center of New Jersey. For patients with glaucoma who are undergoing cataract surgery, a 1 mm titanium tube is place in the draining portion of the eye to allow the pressure in the eye to be reduced. Once the eye is healed, patients often require fewer glaucoma drops of may be able to discontinue their glaucoma drops completely.
The procedure is well tolerated and patients are unaware of the MIGS tube in place. Medical Insurance plans cover the cost of the MIGS procedure.
