Brief Summary:

This is a multicenter, non-comparative trial following participants implanted bilaterally with the Mini WELL Toric Ready intraocular lens (IOL) for 6 months after the second eye implant.

The objective of the study is to evaluate the clinical performance of the Mini WELL Toric Ready intraocular lens (IOL), in particular, visual performance and rotational stability at 6 months following the second eye implantation in participants suffering from bilateral cataract with corneal astigmatism.

There are 2 hypotheses:

  • Rotational Stability: the rotation of the Mini WELL Toric Ready IOL compared between Visit 0a (the day of surgery) and Visit 4 (120-180 days post-operative follow-up) shall be less than ±10° in 90 percents of the cases, less than ±20° in 95 percents of the cases, and less than ±30° in 99 percents of the cases.
  • Severe Visual Distortions: the rate of severe visual distortions for the Mini WELL Toric Ready IOL reported at 6 months postoperative will be less than 10 percents.

Detailed Description:

This is an interventional, multicenter, non-comparative post-marketing clinical investigation in participants implanted bilaterally with the Mini WELL Toric Ready intraocular lens (IOL) for 6 months after the second eye implant.

The objective of this study is to evaluate the clinical performance of the Mini WELL Toric Ready IOL, in particular, visual performance and rotational stability at 6 months following second eye implantation.

The first hypothesis raised for this study is related to rotational stability. The rotation of the Mini WELL Toric Ready IOL between Visit 0a (the day of the surgery) and Visit 4 (120-180 day post-operative follow-up) shall be less than 10° in 90 percents of the cases, less than 20° in 95 percents of the cases, and less than 30° in 99 percents of the cases.

The second hypothesis is regarding severe visual distortions. The rate of severe visual distortions for the Mini WELL Toric Ready IOL reported 6 months post-operative will be less than 10 percents.

The study will involve 69 participants in 3 countries in order to achieve a target number of 60 evaluable participants completing the study.

This clinical study is composed of 9 scheduled visits. Following completion of the Informed Consent process, a pre-operative examination will take place to determine each patient's eligibility. Eligible patients, who wish to continue with the study, will be invited to undergo their first surgical procedure within 30 days. They will be required to undergo their second surgical procedure within 2 weeks of the initial operation. They will also be required to return for additional post-operative follow-up visits, 1-2 days after each eye surgery, 7-14 days after each eye surgery, 30-60 days after bilateral surgery and 120-180 days after bilateral surgery.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Mini WELL Toric Ready intraocular lens Device: Mini WELL Toric Ready intraocular lens
The aim of cataract surgery is to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with the artificial intraocular lens called Mini WELL Toric Ready to correct presbyopia and to correct corneal astigmatism.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Intraocular lens (IOL) rotation [ Time Frame: 6 months after second eye implant ]
    To evaluate the rotational stability of Mini WELL Toric Ready IOL.

  2. Rate of severe visual distortions [ Time Frame: 6 months after second eye implant ]
    To evaluate the visual performance of Mini WELL Toric Ready IOL.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. The rate of visual disturbances as detected with the Halometry test [ Time Frame: 6 months after second eye implant ]
  2. The rate of secondary surgical interventions (SSIs) related to the optical properties of the IOL for first and second operative eye separately [ Time Frame: 6 months after second eye implant ]

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Eighteen years of age or older at the time of surgery and diagnosed with bilateral cataracts;
  • Planned bilateral cataract removal by phacoemulsification;
  • Preoperative total corneal astigmatism of 0.89 - 2.91 D, measured by corneal topography in both operative eyes;
  • IOL power and cylinder requirement calculated by the specific web-based Mini Toric Calculator within the following range:
  • Cylinder of: 1.50 D to 4.00 D
  • Spherical Equivalent of: 18.00 to 28.00 D
  • Willing and able to complete all required postoperative visits;
  • Clear intraocular media other than cataract;
  • Available for second-eye surgery within 2 weeks of the initial operation;
  • Potential postoperative visual acuity of 0.3 logMAR in both eyes;
  • Able to comprehend and sign a statement of informed consent consistent with local regulation for research in human subjects.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Irregular / asymmetric astigmatism;
  • Significant irregular corneal aberration as demonstrated by corneal topography;
  • Keratopathy / Kerectasia - any corneal abnormality, other than regular corneal astigmatism, including, but not limited to the following: keratoconus, keratoglobus, keratolysis, keratomalacia, keratomicosis and corneal plana;

  • Pregnant or lactating or planning a pregnancy at the time of enrolment;
