FULL STOP SURGERY

PROGRESS IN CATARACT SURGERY :

Cataract is treated by surgically removing the cataract and implanting an artificial replacement called an intraocular lens (IOL). Recent advances in the cataract surgery procedure have gradually reduced the size of the incision needed for surgery from 12mm to 3mm making it safer and less invasive.

MICROINCISION CATARACT SURGERY (MICS) :

MICS is the most advanced, state-of-the-art technique for treating cataract. Now only two very small incisions of 1.8 mm or less are required to perform the entire cataract surgery procedure.

THE BENEFITS OF MICS :

Reducing the incision size with pioneering MICS technique provides the following advantages :

  • Safe reliable operation
  • Less invasive, gentle surgery and improved patient comfort
  • Prevents unwanted interferences to vision known as astigmatism
  • Faster healing and recovery time -return to normal life more quickly

MICS PROCEDURE :

Specialised 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 (Aspiration).The eye is then ready to receive artificial lens.

MICROINCISIONS AND MICS IOL :

Intraocular lens (IOL) are designed to restore your sight and give best possible quality of vision.

To gain the full benefit of the MICS Technique, it is important to also 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, known as surgically induced astigmatism. These changes can cause image interference and reduce the quality of vision.

The latest technical optical innovation with the benefits of the MICS procedure cares for your vision. Implanting these advanced optical lenses through a microincision optimises good visual results.
