Tulsa Glacuoma Surgeon, Dr. Anthony Economou, only performs FDA approved surgery, on the Glacuomatous Eye. Please research the MIGS procedure (minimally invasive glaucoma surgery) prior to allowing any surgeon to perform this procedure, on your eyes. Other Surgeons are altering the MIGS procedure, in order to receive payment. This equates to a glorified Trabeculectomy, not a true Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS).
According to Insurance data, some MIGS procedures are coded as Experimental (This means a
“T “ billing code is utilized, by that surgeon or surgery center). Don’t allow your eye to be the experiment for pharmaceutical companies. Dr. Economou is happy to sit down and visit with you, regarding the true MIGS procedure. If you would like education materials on the FDA approved methods (for MIGS), utilized across the United States & by leading Glaucoma surgeons, please email Dr. Economou at : [email protected]
Dr. Economou is strongly opposed to “altering the FDA approved procedure”, simply to adjust, for the billing or filing of a claim.

“I feel vision is such a precious gift. I only refer to the most skilled physicians in Oklahoma. It is my belief that skill, education & deliberate action is the key to successful management of ocular disease. The physicians I refer to feel the same, allowing us to create a top notch, medical team around each of my patients.” Dr. Anthony Economou.

“When patients are treated at the Walmart type practice, Often the patient gets trapped in a cycle of internal referrals, restricting the patients ability to receive a true, non-bias, non-monetary driven medical diagnosis & treatment”. Dr. Anthony Economou
