Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery in Mindanao

Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) is a new approach for treating glaucoma, a leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. Davao Doctors Hospital, renowned for providing advanced healthcare services in Mindanao, now offers these innovative techniques for patients battling glaucoma. MIGS procedures offer advantages over traditional glaucoma surgeries, including smaller incisions, reduced trauma to the eye, faster recovery times, and lower risk for complications. These procedures aim to improve the eye’s natural drainage system, lowering intraocular pressure and preserving vision.

At Davao Doctors Hospital, experienced ophthalmologists utilize state-of-the-art MIGS techniques, including trabecular microbypass stents, canal-based procedures, and minimally invasive subconjunctival procedures, ensuring that treatment plans are tailored to each patient’s specific conditions and preferences.

The adoption of MIGS at Davao Doctors Hospital underscores its commitment to providing cutting-edge, patient-centered eye care for the entire Mindanao region.
