Brief Summary:
The objective of this clinical trial is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Bausch + Lomb Toric Accommodating Posterior Chamber Silicone Intraocular Lens used to provide near, intermediate, and distance vision and a reduction of the effects of preoperative corneal astigmatism in presbyopic patients undergoing cataract extraction and intraocular lens (IOL) placement.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent Reduction in Absolute Cylinder [ Time Frame: 120 - 180 day postoperative visit ]
    Percent reduction in absolute cylinder expressed as a percentage of the intended reduction in cylinder. Cylinder reduction is the measurement for astigmatism reduction. Astigmatism is a form of refractive error that can affect uncorrected visual acuity (at all distances). Reducing cylinder should improve UCVA, but other elements of refractive error, such as myopia or hyperopia, can also affect UCVA. Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) is not affected by refractive error.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Lens Misalignment [ Time Frame: 120 - 180 day postoperative visit ]
    This Outcome Measure was evaluated for Crystalens Toric IOL arm only - Toric IOLs require precise alignment to correct astigmatism; control IOLs do not.

  2. Visual Acuity [ Time Frame: 120 - 180 day postoperative visit ]
    Best-Corrected Distance Visual Acuity (BCDVA) without Glare (logMAR)

  • Subjects with chronic use of systemic steroids or immunosuppressive medications.
  • Subjects either concurrently participating in another clinical trial or have participated in another clinical trial within 60 days prior to enrollment in this study.
  • Subjects with a difference in corneal astigmatism measured with the IOL Master and the topographer greater than 0.5 D using vector analysis.
