ESCRS eConnect webinar: MIGS for cataract surgeons

12th June 2024

19:30-20:30 CEST

Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) has changed the treatment landscape for glaucoma, offering a safer and less invasive alternative to traditional glaucoma surgeries, focusing on reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) with minimal trauma and faster recovery times. This approach is particularly advantageous for patients undergoing cataract surgery, as it allows both conditions to be addressed simultaneously, reducing the burden of surgery and potentially improving visual outcomes.

Join us for new edition of ESCRS eConnect webinar where selected panel of experts will delve into the latest advancements in this field. The session will offer clinical insights on identifying the ideal patient profile, followed by an overview of the complex and ever-changing landscape of contemporary MIGS procedures. The webinar will also provide the latest data on of combining cataract surgery with MIGS procedures, indicating the best treatment options for these cases. Finally, we'll conclude with strategies for managing patients after a failed MIGS procedure.
