The Significance of ECP in Today’s Glaucoma Management

A pressure-lowering workhorse emerges as potent pairing with MIGS

In the era of minimally invasive glaucoma surgeries (MIGS), it is important to remember that some would say endocyclophotocoagulation (ECP) was one of the first MIGS procedures. Predating the implants and other approaches used today, it has long been a powerful workhorse for patients with early mild to moderate glaucoma and concomitant cataracts. MIGS procedures have replaced ECP in many of these cases, but ECP still benefits many patients — most recently, when used in combination with MIGS. (con’t)
