Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent of Patients Who Developed Macular Edema (ME) Within 90 Days Following Cataract Surgery [ Time Frame: 3 Months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Macular edema (thickening of the center of the back of the eye) was defined as 30% or greater increase from pre-operative baseline measurement in central subfield macular thickness as measured using Optical Coherence Tomography(OCT).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent of Patients With a Decrease of More Than 5 Letters in Best-corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA). [ Time Frame: From Day 7 to Day 90 (or Early Exit) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    BCVA was measured using the procedure developed for the Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study.
