Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: VIGADEXA Gel
VIGADEXA ophthalmic gel topically administered TID to the operative eye starting the day before surgery, continuing on the day of surgery, and for 15 days following surgery.
Drug: Moxifloxacin 0.5%/Dexamethasone Phosphate 0.075% Ophthalmic Gel (VIGADEXA Gel)
One ribbon (approximately 1-1.5 cm) administered topically in the conjunctival sac of the study eye three times daily (TID), starting the day before surgery (Day -1) and continuing on the day of surgery and for 15 days following surgery.
Other Name: FID 119149, VIGADEXA Gel
Active Comparator: VIGADEXA Solution
VIGADEXA ophthalmic solution topically administered QID to the operative eye starting the day before surgery, continuing on the day of surgery, and for 15 days following surgery.
Drug: Moxifloxacin 0.5%/Dexamethasone Phosphate 0.1% Ophthalmic Solution (VIGADEXA Solution)
One drop administered topically in the conjunctival sac of the study eye four times daily (QID), starting the day before surgery (Day -1) and continuing on the day of surgery and for 15 days following surgery.
Other Name: VIGADEXA Solution


Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of patients with a score of 0 (<5 cells) for cells in the anterior chamber [ Time Frame: Day 15 post-operative ]
    As assessed by the investigator during slit-lamp examination.

  2. Percentage of patients with no clinically evidenced bacterial infection [ Time Frame: Day 15 post-operative ]
    As assessed by the investigator during slit-lamp examination.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Cells in the anterior chamber (study eye) [ Time Frame: Day 15 post-operative ]
    As assessed by the investigator during slit-lamp examination.

  2. Ocular pain (study eye) [ Time Frame: Day 15 post-operative ]
    As assessed by the investigator during patient interview.

  3. Inflammatory reaction (study eye) [ Time Frame: Day 15 post-operative ]
    As assessed by the investigator during slit-lamp examination.
