There is a growing body of investigation focused on minimally invasive bimanual microincision cataract surgery (MICS). The first reports of this technique published in peer-reviewed journals appeared in the mid-1970s and 1980s [1–4]. Agarwal is generally recognized as having created a renewed interest in this technique .
