This type of advanced treatment has helped doctors in improving the results of the surgery. In this technique, the cataract surgery is performed using new and sophisticated surgical tools. It requires a minimum incision of 1.8 mm. The surgical technique has become the best option for undergoing minimal invasive cataract surgery.

The advantages of microincision cataract surgery are:
Better post-operative outcomes, Minimum invasive, painless surgery, and refined patient comfort Improves the patient's ability to focus and lesson failure of IOL Faster healing and recovery time, thereby returning to normal life quickly.
A unifocal lens implant restores vision after a cataract surgery at a satisfactory rate enabling the patient to get back to routine activities as before the surgery. Although wearing glasses becomes necessary when reading or sewing, using them for viewing distant objects also helps a lot.
The MICS procedure is carried out using Phacoemulsification technique. In this technique, the cataract is broken with the help of an ultrasound probe, and removed by applying suction methods.
Different types of lenses one can find in the market are: Rigid lens or non – foldable, foldable, Hydrophilic, Multifocal Acrylic, MICS, Hydrophobic. In case of unifocal lens implanted, the patient almost always has to depend on glasses.
