BUCKHANNON, W.Va. – Brian McMillan, MD is now providing laser surgery and minimally invasive glaucoma surgery at the time of cataract surgery for the treatment of glaucoma through the St. Joseph’s Hospital Ophthalmology clinic affiliated with the WVU Eye Institute.
Laser surgery can be used to lower the intraocular pressure created by fluid buildup behind the eye. It is used when eye drop medications to treat glaucoma are not lowering the eye pressure enough or as an alternative to eye drops. Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery involves opening the natural drainage system and can be combined with cataract surgery. These surgeries can help to decrease eye pressure and slow or prevent more damage and vision loss.
Dr. McMillan sees patients in the Ophthalmology Clinic located in Building B, 10 Amalia Drive in Buckhannon. He is accepting new patients with a physician referral. For more information, call 304-472-2100.
