In the first case, Sub 1mm MICS Surgery is performed in a grade 3 cataract using the Stellaris MICS platform. Jorge Alio, MD, makes sub-1mm incisions 90 degrees apart. After removing the lens quadrants, cortex is aspirated with bimanuality which enables the surgeon to access almost every part of the capsular bag. The second case includes astigmatism correction with limbal relaxing incisions. One LRI is opened to approximately 1.8 mm to accommodate an Akreos MI60 IOL (Bausch + Lomb). At the end of the case, the wounds are hydrated.
