Study Description

Brief Summary

This study is a 6-month, prospective, multicenter, bilateral, randomized subject- and evaluator-masked, clinical investigation of the TECNIS Eyhance IOL versus the TECNIS 1-piece IOL.

The study will be conducted at up to 15 sites in the U.S.A and will enroll approximately 220 subjects to achieve approximately 200 randomized and bilaterally implanted subjects, resulting in approximately 100 evaluable subjects in each lens group at 6 months. Subjects are to be implanted with the same IOL in both eyes: TECNIS Eyhance IOL or the TECNIS 1-Piece IOL. The eye implanted first will be considered the primary study eye.

  • Corneal astigmatism parameters:

  • Normal corneal topography and no irregular corneal astigmatism

  • Postoperative astigmatism can be surgically managed to be less than 1 D in each eye

  • Clear intraocular media other than cataract in each eye

  • Availability, willingness, ability, and sufficient cognitive awareness to comply with examination procedures and study visits

  • Signed informed consent and HIPAA authorization or equivalent documentation necessary to comply with applicable privacy laws pertaining to medical treatment in the governing countries
