Abstract: Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) is a new and exciting class of treatment for patients with glaucoma. It potentially lowers intra-ocular pressure and reduces dependence on medication with a quick and safe intervention. It may be administered by any ophthalmologist familiar with anterior segment surgery and therefore is of relevence and interest to the broader ophthalmic community. There are many MIGS devices available and more are on the way.
This symposium aims to address our current understanding of MIGS by examining such issues as efftcacy, patient selection and technique. It will draw on the extensive experience of local surgeons with a contribution from invited speak Dr Anne Coleman who has published a review on this topic in past 24 months
