Brief Summary:
To demonstrate that the combination formulation of Moxifloxacin/Dexamethasone Eye Drop is effective and safe for the prevention of postoperative inflammation as a consequence of cataract extraction surgery.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cataract Drug: Vigadexa (moxifloxacin 0.5% and dexamethasone 0.1%) eye drops Phase 4

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 64 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Evaluation of the Prophylactic Efficacy and Safety of the Administration of the Combination Formulation of Moxifloxacin 0.5% and Dexamethasone 0.1% Eye Drops in Inflammation and Infection Post-cataract Surgery
Study Start Date : September 2008
Actual Primary Completion Date : February 2009

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Vigadexa eye drops
Vigadexa (moxifloxacin 0.5% and dexamethasone 0.1%) eye drops
Drug: Vigadexa (moxifloxacin 0.5% and dexamethasone 0.1%) eye drops
1 drop every 6 hours into the study eye

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Percentage of Patients With a Score of Zero for Anterior Chamber Cells. [ Time Frame: Day 15 after cataract surgery ]

    The percentage of patients with a score of zero for Anterior chamber cells.

    Anterior chamber inflammation was evaluated based on the number of cells per high-power field measured using the narrowest slit beam of the lamp (0.5 at a height of 8mm).

    Anterior chamber cells was recorded on a 0-4 point scale,0 = Less than 5 cells; 1 = Mild: 5-10 cells; 2 = Moderate:11-20 cells; 3 = Marked: 21-50 cells; 4 = Severe: Greater than 50 cells / hypopyon

  2. The Percentage of Patients With no Ocular Pain [ Time Frame: Day 15 after cataract surgery ]
