THE OPPORTUNITY

GLAUCOMA’S IMPACTS ON OUR COMMUNITIES

  • Eye disease resulting in damage to the optic nerve caused by increased interocular pressure due to obstructed outflow of aqueous, most often impacting those over the age of 60
  • Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness worldwide
  • In the U.S., there are an estimated 2.5 million cases of primary open angle glaucoma, growing to more than 3M cases by 2020, with more than 88,000 of these patients going blind*

OVERVIEW OF PROGRAM BENEFITS

  • Intervene earlier and lower IOP to potentially relieve symptoms of glaucoma
  • Reduce the need for more aggressive surgical options
  • Reduce medication burden

PHYSICIAN CHAMPION PROFILE

The MIGS Program will require a Physician Champion who has a good reputation in the community, supports USPI’s commitment to quality and compliance, and is:

  • Trained in cataract surgery
  • An Ophthalmologist with glaucoma training
  • An Ophthalmologist with high proficiency and willingness to learn MIGS implant techniques

FACILITY OPPORTUNITY

  • Experts estimate that roughly 20% of cataract patients also have glaucoma. That means it is highly likely you already have the ideal patient in your facility.
  • There are 3.5 million cataract procedures annually in the U.S. and 1 in 5 eyes with cataracts have mild to moderate open-angle glaucoma. These patients may be missing out of the potentially life-changing MIGS procedure.
