What advent of MIGS means for earlier glaucoma interventionIn addition to making use of MIGS, interventional glaucoma might utilize other novel drainage devices and sustained drug-delivery devices and be combined with cataract surgery. This approach is more proactive, aims at lower IOP, lowers risk and addresses adherence, said Iqbal Ike K. Ahmed, MD.
