SICS (Small Incision Cataract Surgery)
Small-incisioncataract surgery (SICS) involves an incision of around 6-7 mm made in the form of a tunnel through the sclera and cornea. The lens is removed and replaced with a rigid lens implant through this tunnel. No sutures are needed as the tiny incision will heal naturally by itself. It is a low-cost procedure compared to phacoemulsification and ensures good post-operative outcomes.
