Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The Percentage of Patients With a Score of Zero for Anterior Chamber Cells. [ Time Frame: Day 15 after cataract surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    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

  • The Percentage of Patients With no Ocular Pain [ Time Frame: Day 15 after cataract surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 64
