The objective of this study is to prospectively evaluate the visual parameters in a series
of patients after phacoemulsification cataract surgery in a series of patients bilaterally
implanted with the AcrySof® ReSTOR® Aspheric +3.0 Intraocular Lens (IOL).
- Prospective subjects should be 21 years of age and older, be of any race and gender
and meet study entry criteria. Subject must require extraction of cataracts followed
by implantation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL). Subjects must be
candidates for bilateral removal of the natural crystalline lens followed by
implantation of a multifocal IOL and be willing and able to complete all follow-up
- Subjects with pre-existing conditions that could skew the results or are
contraindications for the AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL should be excluded from the study.
Please consult the AcrySof® ReSTOR® Aspheric product inserts under "Precautions" for
subject groups that should be excluded from this study.
All subjects must have ≤ 0.75 diopters of astigmatism preoperatively as measured by
Keratometry (K) readings. If the surgeon determines that a correction of cylinder is
necessary postoperatively, this may be performed after the three month evaluations are
