Building on the proven performance of Bausch + Lomb products, the Akreos MICS material has been used by physicians since 1998. It’s 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 MICS 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.
