Brief Summary:
To describe biocompatibility, postoperative results and complications after implantation of the Corneal Quatrix Evolutive (Corneal, Croma, Austria) intraocular lens, a hydrophilic acrylic intraocular lens (IOL) with 4-haptic design and 360° sharp optic edge.

Condition or disease

Detailed Description:
In this prospective case series the Corneal Quatrix Evolutive IOL was implanted in 14 eyes of nine patients with senile cortico-nuclear cataract. A standardized surgical technique and post-operative regimen were applied. Six months postoperatively best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), refraction and complications (especially) posterior capsule opacification (PCO) were analysed.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) [ Time Frame: Six months ]
    The best-corrected visual acuity is assessed with glasses after cataract operation

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Posterior capsule opacification [ Time Frame: Six months ]
    The posterior capsule opacification is assessed by slit lamp examination and subjective grading
