Microincision Phacoemulsification with foldable IOLs (MICS-1.8 mm)
What is Cataract Surgery
MICS is the most advanced, state-of-the-technique for treating cataracts. Now only two very small incisions of 1.8mm or less are required to perform the entire eye cataract surgery procedure.
Benefits of MICS
Reducing the incision size with powerful MICS Technique provides the following advantages:
Recovered sight and good vision
Safe, reliable operation
Faster healing and recovery time
Prevents unwanted interferences to vision known as astigmatism.
Improved patient comfort
Special MICS equipment and instruments are used to perform the surgery in a safe and stable manner. An ultrasound probe is used to safely break up the cataract using a technique called phacoemulsification. The cataract is then removed with suction. The eye is then ready to receive the artificial lens.
Microincisions and the MICS IOL
Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are designed to restore your sight and give you the best possible quality of vision. To gain the full benefit of the MICS technique, it is important to use an IOL designed to be implanted through a 1.8mm microincision.
The larger incisions used for standard cataract surgery and standard IOLs may cause unwanted changes to the eye, called surgically induced astigmatism. These changes can cause image interference and reduce the quality of vision.
Perfectly shaped for stable vision.-MICS IOL is designed for maximum stability to help maintain sharp, distance vision over time.
MICS technique is without imperfections called aberrations. That's why it is known as aspheric, aberration-free IOL
MICS IOL is designed to reduce visual disturbances to give high definition and high resolution vision with increased contrast sensitivity.
MICS IOL will correct only distance vision, not near vision.
