Thanks to advancements in glaucoma treatment technologies, most patients with glaucoma have a variety of revolutionary treatment options to choose from and manage their disease. Most of these options fall under minimally invasive glaucoma surgery or MIGS. At Palm Beach Eye Center in Lake Worth, FL, we proudly perform MIGS treatments and other innovative laser therapies for our patients. MIGS procedures use minuscule surgical incisions and devices to lower internal eye pressure and reduce injury to the optic nerve. Plus, MIGS works well for most stages of glaucoma, and they usually have fewer post-surgery complications. In fact, most glaucoma specialists believe MIGS work better than trabeculectomies (traditional glaucoma surgery). Proudly serving our Lake Worth, FL and Delray Beach, FL communities, please reach out to our eye care group and schedule your MIGS consultation.

"Dr. Jay Wallshein is an Elite person. I knew of Dr. Wallshein when I used to drive an elderly lady to his office in Delray. This lady fell and split her eye in half. Dr Wallshein stitched her eyeball back together. I was so shocked to see her wellness afterwards, I could see her transparent stitches in her eye. And I was there with her when Dr. Wallshein took her stitches off. I mentioned then to Dr. Wallshein, if I ever were to need an eye doctor, I would come back to him. Now, years later, Dr. Jay Wallshein is my Elite Doctor. Thank You Dr. Wallshein!!!! Jesica B. Boynton Beach, FL"- W. / Google / Oct 15, 2021

What Should I Expect with MIGS?
Our skilled South Florida ophthalmologists have years of experience diagnosing glaucoma and performing MIGS or laser surgery. Each type of glaucoma can range from mild to severe, and they require a customized treatment plan to manage the disease. Usually, we perform MIGS as an outpatient appointment, and many treatments take around 15 minutes to complete. The best candidates for MIGS:
- Have mild to moderate glaucoma
- Aren't considered at high risk for serious progression
- Are 18 years of age or older
- Haven't reduced their intraocular pressure with prescription eye drops
- Need to manage both glaucoma and cataracts
Compared to other traditional glaucoma procedures, patients can experience a reduced recovery time with MIGS. Often, most individuals can return to their routine activities within several days. After completing the procedure, we carefully discuss each patient's aftercare needs for taking care of their eyes during the recovery period.
