Micro-invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) Devices

GLE-Precision is your source for R&D

Over 3 million people in the United States and 60 million globally would be on the path to blindness if it were not for recent medical advances.

Glaucoma is an ocular disease that causes a loss of vision through damage to the optic nerve. One way to prevent the further loss of vision is through a micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) device. We are proud that GLE is a MIGS device supplier.

Glaucoma

There are multiple forms of glaucoma, but two are the most common – primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and angle-closure glaucoma. An increase in intraocular pressure (IOP) causes both of these types of glaucoma. POAG is more common and has, therefore, garnered the most focus on treatment and support. It often advances to a late-stage before the patient notices, while angle-closure glaucoma manifests in an “attack”. These attacks are often characterized by severe pain in the optical area, redness, decreased/blurry vision, halos, headache, nausea, and/or vomiting.

GLE-Precision’s Developments

Recently, the team at GLE Precision has been focusing on displaying our core capabilities. We hired a cinematography company to create some videos that showcase our talents, have written blogs on the subject, and displayed some of the parts on our blog/social media. One of our capabilities is small parts, which lends itself well to the MIGS industry. For example, above is a picture of our machinist Scott holding a tool we recently made for a MIGS device supplier. The tooling is only the small tip of the shaft!

We manufacture precision products,

special tungsten carbide components and wear parts to customer print, and carbide gages and masters.
