Further study details as provided by General Hospital Linz:

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

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

Enrollment: 9
Study Start Date: May 2008
Study Completion Date: August 2009
Primary Completion Date: August 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Patients with senile cataract
Patients with senile cataract

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.

Ages Eligible for Study:   50 Years to 90 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Patients with advanced age-related cataract and indication for phacoemuslification of the lens with following implantation of an intraocular lens (posterior chamber)

Inclusion Criteria:

Patients with senile cortico-nuclear cataracts without previous intraocular surgery

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Dilated pupil size of < 6 mm
  • long-term anti-inflammatory treatment
  • previous history of intraocular surgery
  • previous history of corneal endothelial damage
  • previous history of ocular trauma
  • traumatic cataract
  • history of uveitis
  • diabetic retinopathy
  • advanced macular degeneration
