Enrollment: 125
Study Start Date: September 2006
Study Completion Date: September 2008
Primary Completion Date: April 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Akreos TL intraocular lens
Bausch & Lomb Akreos TL intraocular lens
Device: The Bausch & Lomb Akreos TL IOL (MI60) posterior chamber IOL
Surgery to implant the Bausch & Lomb Akreos TL Intraocular Lens will be performed using standard microsurgical techniques following cataract surgery.


Ages Eligible for Study:   50 Years to 79 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects must have a clinically documented diagnosis of age-related cataract that is considered amenable to treatment with standard phacoemulsification/extracapsular cataract extraction.
  • Subjects must be undergoing primary intraocular lens implantation for the correction of aphakia following continuous curvilinear anterior capsulotomy and phacoemulsification cataract extraction.
  • Subjects must require a lens power from 15 to 30 diopters.
  • Subjects must have a visual potential of 20/40 or better in the study eye.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with any anterior segment pathology for which extracapsular phacoemulsification cataract surgery would be contraindicated.
  • Subjects with any inflammation or edema (swelling) of the cornea.
  • Subjects with uncontrolled glaucoma or glaucoma under current treatment in the study eye or with ocular hypertension.
  • Subjects with previous retinal detachment.
  • Subjects with diabetic retinopathy (proliferative or non-proliferative).
  • Subjects with rubella, bilateral congenital, traumatic, or complicated cataract.
  • Subjects who have had previous ocular surgery in the planned operative eye, excluding ocular adnexa surgery.
  • Subjects who have already received an Akreos TL IOL in the fellow eye.
