Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Resolution of Anterior Chamber Cells. [ Time Frame: Visit 5 (Postoperative day 8) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participants with complete resolution of anterior chamber cells(ACC). Cells were graded on a 0-4 scale, where 0=no cells and 4=>30 cells

  • Grade 0 Pain [ Time Frame: Visit 5 (Postoperative day 8) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participants with no pain, graded on a 0-5 scale, 0=no pain and 5=severe pain


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Resolution of Anterior Chamber Cells [ Time Frame: Visit 4-7 (postoperative day 3-18) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participants with complete resolution of anterior chamber cells(ACC). Cells were graded on a 0-4 scale, where 0=no cells and 4=>30 cells

  • Grade 0 Pain [ Time Frame: Visits 4-7 (Postoperative days 3-18) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participants with no pain, graded on a 0-5 scale, 0= no pain and 5=severe pain

  • Resolution of Anterior Chamber Flare [ Time Frame: Visit 4-7 (postoperative day 3-18) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Complete resolution of flare, scored on a scale of 0-4 were 0=none and 4=very severe.
