Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 40 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Subjects must have clear intraocular media other than cataract in the study eye. - Subjects must have a clinically documented diagnosis of age-related cataract that is considered amenable to treatment with micro-incision phacoemulsification cataract extraction in the study eye.
