Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
single group
the intra ocular lenses will be loaded in the cartridge.
Procedure: cartridge
IOL cartridge coated with polymer material may ensure smooth delivery of IOL during cataract surgery

Detailed Description:
Intraocular Lenses (IOL) Cartridge is made up of polypropylene material with coating. This cartridge is used as lens delivery system for foldable lens implantation while doing cataract surgery. The coating is made up of medical grade polyurethane and biocompatible. This coating would be useful for smooth delivery of intraocular lens.
