Successful interventional glaucoma remains a sought-after goal for the glaucoma clinician for many reasons. Medical costs, compliance, and adherence remain major barriers for the treatment of our patients. A truly definitive treatment for glaucoma is most likely to be largely surgical, as it is doubtful that patients will continue to use glaucoma drugs in the future for anything other than transient lowering of intraocular pressure. In the coming era, it seems probable that neuroprotection and neurorestoration will be combined with MIGS to lower pressure.

The different types of MIGS are increasing in proportion to their efficacy. To date, there are no fewer than 12 choices available to glaucoma specialists. Choice of procedure depends on the underlying anatomy as well as the patient’s individual characteristics. Truthfully, the number of available surgeries depends upon their taxonomy. Most are based on the outflow system and the canal, as illustrated in this book.
