Struggling with the challenges of cataracts, such as blurred vision and difficulty seeing clearly, can be a significant source of frustration.

The good news is that there’s an advanced solution called Microincision Cataract Surgery (MICS) that offers hope for relief. Unlike traditional cataract surgery, MICS involves much smaller incisions, leading to reduced discomfort, quicker recovery, and improved vision outcomes.

What is Microincision Cataract Surgery in Dubai?

Microincision cataract surgery is a modern technique designed to remove cataracts, a common age-related condition characterized by the clouding of the natural lens of the eye.

This cloudiness leads to blurry vision, necessitating the replacement of the eye’s cloudy lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) to restore clear vision.

What sets MICS apart is its use of extremely tiny incisions, typically less than 2 mm long, as opposed to the larger incisions of traditional cataract surgery.

Why Should You Choose Microincision Cataract Surgery in Dubai?

Microincision cataract surgery (MICS) offers several benefits compared to traditional cataract surgery, which involves larger incisions.  Here are some of the key advantages of MICS:
  • Smaller incisions that lead to faster healing
  • It’s effective in controlling corneal astigmatism.
  • Reduced astigmatism after surgery means less reliance on corrective lenses.
  • Quicker postoperative recovery and minimal discomfort.
  • Allows for the use of high-quality IOLs, guaranteeing optimal vision.
  • Faster healing benefits diabetic patients, the elderly, and those with comorbidities.
  • No need for postoperative anesthetic injections, sutures, bandages, or restrictions.
  • Fewer follow-up appointments, and you can resume normal activities sooner.

How is Microincision Cataract Surgery Performed?

Before the surgery, the patient is administered local anesthesia to numb the eye. This can be done through eye drops or a small injection.

  • Microincision cataract surgery is a highly advanced and minimally invasive procedure and begins with our surgeon, Dr. Vasu, delicately accessing the cataract-afflicted lens through a tiny incision. 


  • The clouded lens is then expertly liquefied and emulsified using ultrasound energy. This technique is known as phacoemulsification


  • The fragmented cataract material is skillfully extracted using Alcon Phaco machine. This sophisticated machinery ensures safe and efficient cataract removal while minimizing potential complications.


  • Once the cataract is fully removed, an artificial intraocular lens or IOL is inserted through the same microincisions. The IOL is carefully positioned to replace the natural lens and correct vision.

Remarkably, this surgery is typically performed as a brief daycase procedure, enabling patients to be discharged on the very same day. The utilization of local anesthesia and the minimally invasive approach contribute to a remarkably swift visual recovery, allowing patients to promptly resume their daily activities, including office work, within just a few days. 

Microincision cataract surgery represents a significant advancement in eye care, offering patients a faster, more comfortable, and highly effective path to vision restoration.

How Does Recovery from Microincision Cataract Surgery Look Like?

Following microincision cataract surgery Dubai, it is crucial to adhere to your eye surgeon’s instructions to ensure a successful outcome and prevent complications. 

Here are some important postoperative guidelines:

  • Keep the eye clean and dry for the first-week post-surgery.
  • Don’t rub or touch your eye.
  • Use artificial tears as necessary to keep the eye well-lubricated.
  • Avoid strenuous activity and lifting anything heavy.
  • Wear protective eyewear like sunglasses to shield your eyes from bright sunlight.

Remember that each patient’s recovery may vary, so it’s essential to follow your surgeon’s specific instructions tailored to your situation. By adhering to these recovery guidelines, you can contribute to a smooth recovery process and achieve the best possible outcome after microincision cataract surgery.

What Risks Does Microincision Cataract Surgery Involve?

While microincision cataract surgery (MICS) is considered a safe and effective procedure, like any surgical intervention, it carries certain risks and potential complications:
