Clinical Evaluation of the FluidVision™ Accommodating Intraocular Lens

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT02049567
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : January 30, 2014

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the investigational FluidVision® Accommodating Intraocular Lens (AIOL) to provide distance, intermediate, and near vision.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Aphakia Device: FluidVision AIOL Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Eligible subjects will receive the investigational AIOL in one eye and be followed at 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 12 months, 18 months, 24 months and 36 months post-operation.

This study was designed and conducted by PowerVision, Inc. Alcon Research, LLC, acquired PowerVision, Inc., in 2019.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 170 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Clinical Evaluation of the FluidVision™ Accommodating Intraocular Lens
Actual Study Start Date : January 14, 2014
Actual Primary Completion Date : June 24, 2015
Actual Study Completion Date : November 6, 2017

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: FluidVision AIOL
FluidVision AIOL implanted in the capsular bag following removal of the cataractous lens
Device: FluidVision AIOL
Accommodating intraocular lens designed to restore visual function at all distances using the eye's natural accommodative forces, intended for lifetime use
Other Name: FluidVision ME

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective accommodative amplitude (calculated at the IOL plane) [ Time Frame: Month 6 ]
    Accommodative amplitude is a measure of the ability of the eye to focus from a target that is at distance into a target that is near with good visual acuity. Objective accommodation (at the IOL plane) will be assessed using data generated by a photorefractor that analyzes the change in the refractive state of the eye.

  2. Best corrected distance visual acuity (BCDVA) of logMAR of 0.3 or better [ Time Frame: Month 6 ]
    Visual acuity of the eye will be tested while reading charts at 20-foot equivalent distance from the participant with the correction obtained from manifest refraction testing.

  3. Rates of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to Month 36 ]
    Adverse events will be collected from time of enrollment to study exit

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   50 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Key Inclusion Criteria:

  • Eligible for primary intraocular lens implantation for the correction of aphakia following cataract extraction;
  • Best corrected distance visual acuity worse than 20/40 either with or without a glare source present (e.g. Brightness Acuity Tester);
  • Predicted best corrected distance visual acuity of 20/40 or better after cataract removal and AIOL implantation as determined by potential acuity meter (PAM) or other potential vision tests or surgeon estimation on both eyes;
  • Less than or equal to 1.0 diopter (D) of preoperative keratometric astigmatism;
  • Willing and able to comply with schedule for follow-up visits for 36 months after surgery.
  • Other protocol-defined inclusion criteria may apply.

Key Exclusion Criteria:

  • Taking medications that may affect accommodation;
  • Systemic disease that could increase the operative risk or confound the outcome (e.g. autoimmune disease, diabetes);
  • Taking systemic medications that may confound the outcome or increase the risk to the subject;
  • Ocular conditions that may predispose for future complications;
  • Previous intraocular or corneal surgery that might confound the outcome of the investigation or increase the risk to the subject;
  • Pregnant, lactating during the course of the investigation, or with another condition associated with fluctuation of hormones that could lead to refractive changes;
  • Diagnosed degenerative visual disorders (e.g. macular degeneration or other retinal disorders) that are predicted to cause future best corrected visual acuity loss worse than 20/40.
  • Other protocol-defined exclusion criteria may apply.
