To collect visual outcome data post AcrySof ReSTOR Aspheric +4 implantation from surgeons throughout the United States.

Condition Intervention Phase
Device: ReSTOR
Phase 4

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: Surgeon Experience ReSTOR Aspheric +4 Intraocular Lens (IOL)

Further study details as provided by Alcon Research:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Visual Acuity [ Time Frame: 1 week to 10 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Uncorrected Visual Acuity (UCVA) and Best Spectacle Corrected Visual Acuity (BSCVA) at distance (4 meters) and near at preferred distance and measured by logMAR. LogMAR is the "logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution". It is a unit of measure for visual acuity (VA). A lower logMAR value indicates better visual acuity.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Contrast Sensitivity [ Time Frame: 1 week to 10 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Contrast sensitivity is the measurement of how faded an image may become before it is indistinguishable. Contrast sensitivity was measured in photopic, mesopic, and mesopic with glare conditions at the following spatial frequencies: 1.5, 3, 6, 12, and 18 cpd (cycles per degree). Contrast sensitivity is measured in log units. A higher value for the logarithmic units translates to better contrast sensitivity.
