CoMICS: our actual technique (bimanual micro cataract surgery vs. coaxial micro cataract surgery) -- Endophthalmitis prevention -- Biaxial microincision phacoemulsification for difficult and challenging cases -- MICS in special cases: incomplete capsulorhexis -- MICS in special cases: vitreous loss -- How to deal with very hard and intumescent cataracts -- IOL types and implantation techniques: MICS intraocular lenses -- Implantation techniques -- Special lenses: toric posterior chamber intraocular lenses in cataract surgery and refractive lens exchange -- Special lenses: MF -- Special lenses: aspheric -- Intraocular lenses to restore and preserve vision following cataract surgery -- Microincision intraocular lenses: others -- Outcomes: safety: MICS versus coaxial phaco -- Control of corneal astigmatism and aberrations -- Corneal endothelium and other safety issues -- Incision quality in MICS
Summary Many ophthalmologists are in the transition from the traditional cataract surgery technique to the new minimally incision cataract surgery (MICS) technique. They are in the need of updated information on how to make this transition smoothly. In this book, world-renowned opinion leaders present up-to-date information on the new and fast-developing trends in cataract surgery. It reflects the state of the art of microincisional cataract surgery with the concept of minimizing incision. It offers all necessary information on the new technology as well as on the surgical technique. Further, it demonstrates how to handle difficult cataract cases as well as new intraocular lenses
