Microincision Cataract Surgery (MICS)

Microincision cataract surgery (MICS) is a minimal invasive cataract surgery, performed by making an incision of less than 1.8 mm. The lens is removed by the phacoemulsification procedure and is implanted with a MICS intraocular lens. MICS is associated with decreased post-operative complications such as corneal aberrations (scratch on the corneal surface) and corneal astigmatism (irregular curvature of the cornea).
