MICS and glaucoma

Abstract : Purpose: Anterior segment imaging devices have brought a better understanding of the role of the lens in angle‐closure glaucoma. The key‐role of the lens in theses presentations seems to be crucial in open‐angle glaucoma as well. Methods: With the growing evidence that the lens plays a more important role in glaucoma than previoulsy thought, it is expected that lens extraction will increase in the next coming years. Micro incision cataract surgery (MICS) offers a unique opportunity to achieve for these cases a safe and reliable procedure. We will focus on combined surgeries with lens extraction (either trabeculectomy or deep sclerectomy).The small size of the corneal incision allows a very good tightness of the incision. Therefore glaucoma surgery is performed on a hard globe with much ease. Conclusion: MICS although dedicated to the field of cataract, yields a valuable improvement in the surgical management of the glaucomas.
