Brief Summary:
The clinical investigation is a post-market clinical follow up study whereby patients undergoing routine cataract surgery will have monolateral implantation of a commercially available, CE approved monofocal intraocular lens MicroPure 1.2.3. (PhysIOL, Liège, Belgium).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cataract Lens Opacities Device: IOL implantation Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The examinations consist of visual acuity data, contrast sensitivity exams, slitlamp examinations and posterior capsule opacification (PCO) grading.

Follow up will be up to 24 months postoperative.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: IOL Implantation experimental
Implantation of Micropure 1.2.3. in one of the eyes of the study subject
Device: IOL implantation
Implantation of monofocal IOL Micropure 1.2.3

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. monocular Corrected Distance Visual Acuity (CDVA) under photopic conditions [ Time Frame: 6 months postoperative ]
    The primary study end point is to show statistically equal visual acuity outcomes on monocular Corrected Distance Visual Acuity (CDVA) under photopic conditions compared to literature data on a monofocal hydrophobic IOL (Alcon - Acrysof SN60AT).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Posterior capsule opacification (PCO) grading [ Time Frame: 2 years postoperative ]
    grade of the PCO determined by slitlamp

  2. Uncorrected Distance Visual acuity (UDVA) [ Time Frame: 6 months postoperative ]
    Monocular Uncorrected Distance Visual acuity (UDVA)

  3. Contrast Sensitivity [ Time Frame: 6 months postoperative ]
    Contrast Sensitivity under photopic and mesopic light conditions

  4. Glistening assessment [ Time Frame: 2 years postoperative ]
    Assessment of glistenings by slitlamp determination
