Study Overview

The team at AcuFocus, Inc., has developed an intraocular lens (IOL or lens), the IC-8 lens, for patients who have cataracts. The clinical study is designed to evaluate if the IC-8 lens will provide far, intermediate and near vision.

There are two ways you may be able to participate in the clinical study:

  1. Test Group (IC-8 Lens Group) will have a standard monofocal lens implanted in one eye. If visual requirements are met after the first lens is implanted, the IC-8 lens will be implanted into the other eye. The IC-8 lens is an investigational device and is being studied to determine if vision at all distances is clearer than with a standard monofocal lens in both eyes.
  2. Control Group (Monofocal Lens Group) will have a standard monofocal lens implanted in one eye. If visual requirements are met, a standard monofocal lens will be implanted in the other eye. A standard monofocal lens is designed to provide far vision, but not near or intermediate vision.

Comparison of the two groups will help determine the improvement in vision with the IC-8 lens. Patients who participate in either group and comply with study commitments will be compensated.

Your next step is to complete a confidential questionnaire. This information will be provided to a local participating doctor near you. If you have a strong interest in becoming a volunteer participant, you will be scheduled for an eye examination for further testing.
