MICS22 represents the next generation of hydrophilic acrylic material customised for micro insertion IOLs. It offers increased tensile strength, enhanced modulus, and controlled unfolding due to excellent shape memory.

MICS22’s stiffness allows laboratories to design thinner IOL optics while maintaining compression forces. It’s optimised for 1.8mm incision in the bag and 1.4mm incision ‘wound assisted’.

Nature: Copolymer of hydroxyethyl methacrylate and methyl methacrylate
