  Purpose

Is the primary objective of this investigation to compare the clinical efficacy of the drug test - Ster ® (prednisolone 1% ophthalmic suspension - Union Chemicals) in the comparator - Fort ® Pred (prednisolone 1% ophthalmic suspension - Allergan) in the control of postoperative inflammation in cataract surgery by phacoemulsification through periodic measurement of efficiency scores (number of cells in the anterior chamber, the presence of fibrin in the anterior chamber, conjunctival hyperemia, corneal edema and Descemet folds).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Comparison of clinical efficacy between the test and comparator drugs by measuring periodic scores of efficacy in established clinical parameters. [ Time Frame: 28 days of treatment. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    We will evaluate the clinical parameters of number of cells in the anterior chamber, the presence of fibrin in the anterior chamber, conjunctival hyperemia, corneal edema and Descemet folds.The treatment will last for 28 days following the conduct of routine postoperative cataract. There will be a total of 04 returns after surgery and with them 07, 14, 21 and 28 days. On each return, will register the change of parameters of efficacy and safety.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Comparison of safety data observed during the study period by assessing frequency and intensity of adverse reactions, compared statistically between groups. [ Time Frame: 28 days of treatment. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The treatment will last for 28 days following the conduct of routine postoperative cataract. There will be a total of 04 returns after surgery and with them 07, 14, 21 and 28 days. On each return, will register the change of parameters of efficacy and safety.


Estimated Enrollment: 106
