Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of eyes with any clear corneal incision/suture leakage as determined by positive Seidel test indicating fluid egress within first 7 days after surgery. [ Time Frame: Days 1-28 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Foreign Body Sensation [ Time Frame: Days 1-28 ]

    Best corrected visual acuity worse than 20/40 at day 1

  • Best corrected visual acuity [ Time Frame: Day 28 ]
    Best corrected visual acuity worse than 20/40 at 28 days

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Presence of ReSure Sealant or suture(s) [ Time Frame: Day 28 ]
    Presence of ReSure Sealant or suture(s)at every follow-up visit

  • Presence of blue colorant in ReSure Sealant [ Time Frame: Day 28 ]
    Presence of blue colorant in ReSure Sealant at every follow-up visit

    Device ease of use during application

  • Corneal edema at 1 day [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
