The objective of this study is to evaluate clinical outcomes following sub-2 mm micro-incision cataract surgery (MICS) and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. This study is evaluated in two Phases

  • V4 (6M) endpoint: primary analysis
  • V5 (12M) and V6 (34M): EPCO score and Nd Yag incidence analysis

Condition Intervention Phase
Procedure: IOL implantation
Device: IOL Implantation
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Genders Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects must have clear intraocular media other than cataract in the study eye.
  • Subjects must have a clinically documented diagnosis of age-related cataract that is considered amenable to treatment with micro-incision phacoemulsification cataract extraction in the study eye.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with ocular malformation in the study eye.
  • Subjects who have had previous surgery in the study eye.
  • Subjects with uncontrolled glaucoma in either eye.
  • Subjects with any anterior segment pathology for which micro-incision phacoemulsification cataract surgery would be contraindicated
  • Subjects using medications known to potentially complicate cataract surgery.
