MIGS is a minimally invasive glaucoma surgery that may be recommended by your eye doctor when eye drops or laser therapy are ineffective at lowering your intraocular pressure. MIGS uses micro-surgery to implant tiny devices in the eye that encourage fluid drainage, decreasing eye pressure that damages the optic nerve. How does it compare to conventional glaucoma surgery?

๐Ÿ”นLess invasive
๐Ÿ”นLess risk of complications
๐Ÿ”นLess traumatic to the eye tissue
๐Ÿ”นLess downtime

Happy Halloween! Keep those little eyes safe tonight with these tips:

๐ŸŽƒMakeup: Choose makeup carefully and always patch test first. Avoid using glitter near the eyes.

๐ŸŽƒCostume Accessories: Be cautious of long and pointy accessories that may pose an eye hazard, especially in crowded or dimly lit areas. Opt for short and flexible accessories made of soft materials like foam.

๐ŸŽƒ Masks: Ensure masks and hoods don't block vision. Masks should also be properly aligned and not restrict peripheral vision. Avoid wearing costume eyepatches while walking to maintain depth perception and reduce the risk of injury.

๐Ÿ’ฆ Careful handling: Before touching your lenses, always wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water and dry them with a lint-free towel.

๐Ÿ”„ Replace regularly: Adhere to the schedule provided by your eye doctor for wearing and replacing your lenses.

๐Ÿšฟ Avoid water contact: When wearing your contacts, refrain from showering, swimming, or using hot tubs, as water and contacts do not mix.
