With its superior design, the Akreos MICS can be compressed easily to fit through a 1.8 mm incision; it unfolds smoothly once implanted into the eye and recovers its initial shape without damage.
Key Features & Benefits
Exceptionally stable and comfortable, aberration-free design
Aspheric lens provides excellent contrast sensitivity
The four-point fixation of the Akreos MICS lens haptic helps optimize stability and centration in the capsular bag
The Akreos lens material has been successfully implanted in over 4 million eyes
Recognized for its innovative design, the Akreos MICS Lens received the prestigious Gold Award at the 2008 Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA).
The Akreos Micro Incision Lens (MIL) combines the benefits of an aberration-free aspheric acrylic lens with the material and design characteristics that allow it to be inserted into a true 1.8 mm incision. Using Bausch + Lomb’s trusted Micro Incision Cataract Surgery (MICS) platform, the Akreos MIL enjoys the numerous advantages of 1.8 mm surgery, including a reduced risk of surgically induced astigmatism, reduced endothelial cell loss, increased wound sealability and minimal corneal stress.
Building on the proven performance of Bausch + Lomb products, the Akreos MIL material has been used by physicians since 1998. Its award-winning design also boasts a moderate refractive index, with inherently low surface reflectivity to reduce glare and its adverse effects1. With its superior design, the Akreos MICS can be compressed easily to fit through a 1.8 mm incision; it unfolds smoothly once implanted into the eye and recovers its initial shape without damage.
Just as important, the Akreos MIL provides for exceptional vision quality for the widest range of patients — from 0 μm to 0.10 μm ocular SA.2 Abberation-free and featuring uniform center-to-edge power, its optical performance is unaffected by pupil size or location of the optic.
