Microincisions in cataract surgery


Reductions in incision size lower than 1.8mm may not be beneficial

Today four fundamental controversies continue in the area of microincisional cataract surgery. 1) Which technique is more efficient, functional and safer: biaxial or microcoaxial? 2) How safe are clear corneal incisions (CCIs) with the gradually decreasing sizes? 3) Are microincision IOLs as successful as conventional intracapsular IOLs? 4) To what end it is meaningful for the incisions getting smaller and smaller? To find the answers to these questions we performed a series of prospective studies over the course of the last five years.
