Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Preoperatively, subjects were examined to ensure they met the inclusion/exclusion criteria. Patients were >49 years of age, of any race and either gender. Patients had operable cataracts in at least one eye and were able to provide informed consent

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
As access to Ophthalmic Viscosurgical Devices (OVDs) was limited, patients received whichever OVD was in stock at the time of surgery. 51 patients had a different OVD used in each eye. As a result, their demographic data is included in 2 OVD groups, resulting in a total of 224 patients (when group totals are added).
