  • The MIMS® solution creates a drainage channel to reduce the IOP. It is minimally invasive, lowers risk of complications, simple and very quick to use, medication-sparing and can be easily combined with Cataract surgery. MIMS® has the potential to replace Trabeculectomy, Stented Trabeculectomy and all the emerging Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS).
