Brief Summary:

Refractive outcome after cataract surgery mainly depends on the prediction of the intraocular lens that is implanted in the eye during surgery.

Aim of this study is to measure the position of the lens capsule during surgery and to use this measurements to improve post-operative refractive outcomes.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Correlation of intra-operative lens capsule measurements and the post-operative lens position [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Aim of this outcome parameter is to detect, if intra-operative measurements (with an optical coherence tomogrophy system) help to detect the position of the artificial lens post-operatively
